Financial Access 2012: Getting to a More Comprehensive Picture

Financial Access 2012: Getting to a More Comprehensive Picture

Ratings: (0)|Views: 12|Likes:
IFC's Access to Finance Advisory and CGAP have released the Financial Access 2012: Getting to a More Comprehensive Picture report. Each year, the Financial Access report aspires to include data on an increasing number of financial service providers, based on data availability. Financial Access 2011 was an exception that provided an overview of the supply-side data landscape with little fresh data. Financial Access 2012 builds on the work done in Financial Access 2009 and Financial Access 2010 to provide new data on financial access. Using eight years of data (2004–2011) from the IMF’s Financial Access Survey (FAS) in combination with other relevant data, Financial Access 2012 further contributes to measuring and analyzing the current state of financial inclusion.
