FinScope Lesotho 2011

The Government of the Kingdom of Lesotho, through the Central Bank of Lesotho, recognises that the scope and efficiency of the financial sector play an important role in facilitating economic and private sector growth. In light of this, one of the main objectives of the government is to improve the reach and depth of financial services delivery in Lesotho. 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 Central Bank of Lesotho (CBL) initiated the implementation of the FinScope Lesotho 2011 survey.
