FinScope South Africa 2010

The public and private partnership sees access to finance as a critical contributing pillar to accelerating growth and development in South Africa. At large, the South African government has a mandate to facilitate, promote and enhance greater access and usage of appropriate financial services and products for all South Africans, especially those currently financially excluded, thus delivering on tangible socio-economic benefits to all citizens. Conducting FinScope survey in South Africa is part of the efforts that support the government; policy makers, researchers and development practitioners as it analyses bottlenecks in the financial sector and also provide evidence-based policymaking. At the same time, FinScope SA has provided the private sector with valuable market information that they can, and have used, to improve service delivery and pursue greater outreach.
