Survey: Over 89 Percent of Rwandans Have Access to Finance

Friday, March 4, 2016

Rwanda has surpassed its financial inclusion targets with more than 89 per cent of adult population accessing financial services, a new FinScope survey 2016 shows.

This is against 80 per cent government’s target set for 2017 and up from 72 per cent when the last survey was conducted back in 2012.

It, therefore, means that another 5.2 million Rwandans have been financially included since 2012.

Rwanda now ranks second in sub-Saharan Africa after Mauritius in terms of financial inclusion echoing other international indexes such as the World Bank Doing Business Report.
