Financial inclusion is one of the technological achievements Nigeria has recorded.
Nigeria has come a long way from little or no technology to embracing and relying on technology. We use technology at every point in our daily activities.
What is financial inclusion?
According to the World Bank, individuals and businesses with access to useful and affordable financial products and services that meet their needs – transactions, payments, savings, credit, and insurance – are said to be financially included.
Simply put to be financially included is to be able to use financial service/products with ease.
Examples of financial inclusion of USSD codes, mobile apps, online banking or shopping and online bill payment.
The advent of financial inclusion made errands/activities so much easier.
From your phone, you can buy airtime, send money, buy things online, buy data, pay for your streaming platforms and even check on your pension, insurance and another other financial service you are paying for.
