FinScope South Africa 2014 Brochure

Financial inclusion has gained recognition as one of the main pillars of the development agenda in South Africa and, plays a vital role in the on-going transformation and development of society. In its desire to improve the lives of people, through boosting economic growth, improving economic opportunities and reducing inequalities, the South African government has placed financial inclusion at the highest level on its national agenda to support the design of effective policies, through the creation of high-level co-ordination platforms.

Over the last ten years, both the public and private sector gave added impetus in their efforts in ensuring a financial inclusion agenda that gives people access to appropriate and affordable financial services.
