Financial Inclusion

Goal:
Deliver the financial services, tools and training rural people need in order to save, access credit and mitigate risk

Rural communities are the largest underserved market for financial services in South Africa. By establishing rural-based financial institutions, traditional communities can serve this untapped market - enable rural entrepreneurs to formalise and grow their business - and generate further revenue for development.

Solution

Village Banking

Village Banks leverage the trust and common needs within rural communities. They will offer rural people and businesses access to savings accounts, micro-credit, insurance and financial literacy training.

By establishing Village Banks, communities will support the wellbeing of households and the capacity for economic growth.
