In many rural areas, money moves in slow and costly ways. This leaves communities economically depressed and financially insecure in the absence of access to financial resources and relationships that would normally drive economic development.
Financial health is central to well-being and resilience. Rural communities are highly underserved by financial services. Ensuring financial inclusion can help unlock considerable economic potential and activity for these communities to grow and thrive.

Individuals and businesses need access to useful, affordable, and sustainable financial products and services to meet their needs to maintain and grow their businesses. Access to capital helps individuals make valuable contributions to their communities.
