Madagascar Synthesis 2018 – 2022 Report – Summary note (English)

In Madagascar’s case, financial inclusion is defined as « the easy access to and use of adapted financial products and services by all segments of the Malagasy population, including savings, insurance, payment and credit, offered by sustainable institutions ».

In Madagascar, as in other countries, the financial sector has a particularly important role to play in unlocking growth opportunities by helping people to cope with risks and to become capable of living on their own. These household level imperatives are also met at a national level since financial services can be a powerful policy tool for resilience, growth and development of the country.

This National Financial Inclusion Strategy document of Madagascar (NFIS 2018- 2022) is drafted in the framework of the implementation of development policies and strategies at global, regional and national levels.
