Nature and Context

A well connected financial system is imperative to a country’s economy, not only for facilitating economic transactions for the community as a whole, but also to serve as a vehicle for savings and long-term planning at the individual level. There is an estimated 55 million Americans who do not have access to financial institutions, or who are considered underbanked by the federal reserve. Digital Financial Services - the use of technological financial solutions including, but not limited, to mobile money - can be enabled to engage this portion of the population and provide formal financial services to the unbanked.
