FinScope Consumer Survey Swaziland 2011 Report

The Government of Swaziland recognises the significant role of the financial services sector in contributing to the overall economic growth of the country. In light of this, one of the main objectives of the government is to improve the reach and depth of financial services delivery in Swaziland. A key constraint in pursuit of this objective has been the lack of comprehensive information about the levels of financial inclusion, as well as the factors inhibiting usage of financial services. Against this background, the Micro Finance Unit (MFU) / Ministry of Finance and FinMark Trust initiated the implementation of the FinScope Consumer Survey in Swaziland in 2011.
