Making Access Possible (MAP) is a diagnostic and programmatic framework to support expanding access to financial services for individuals and micro and small- businesses. The MAP methodology and process has been developed jointly by UNCDF, FinMark Trust and Cenfri to foster inclusive financial sector growth. At country level, the core MAP partners collaborate with Government, other key stakeholders and donors to ensure an inclusive, holistic process. FinScope Benin represents a partnership between the Ministry of Social Affairs and Microfinance, UNCDF, FinMark Trust and the Institute of National Statistics and Economic Analysis (INSAE) for the Development of a Strategic Framework for Financial Inclusion in Benin.
This FinScope Consumer pocket guide represents some of the key market data on financial inclusion. Additional deeper dives on key thematic areas can be found on the data dashboards on agriculture and youth.
Through the Government Actions Program 2016– 2021, the current government of Benin would like to consolidate democracy, the rule of law and good governance and then initiate the structural transformation of the economy in order to improve the living conditions of the people. To do this, the FinScope study and the MAP process are timely to make a significant contribution to the implementation of the Government’s Actions Program, especially with regard to the socio-economic development of Benin. This constitutes the basis for the elaboration of the National Financial Inclusion Strategy by which the Government intends to strengthen monetary policy, increase the efficiency of the banking system by improving intermediation and improve access to finance for the population.
