I’m passionate about the power of financial inclusion – particularly the financial inclusion of young people.
Why? Globally young people are disproportionately financially excluded for a myriad of often complex reasons. One illustration of this exclusion was highlighted by the World Bank’s Findex data released earlier this year, showing that in Sub Saharan Africa just 20% of young people have a bank account compared to 33% of adults.
