Financial Services are critical to growth

• At the macro level, the empirical literature shows that countries with deeper, more developed financial systems can allocate capital more efficiently and enjoy higher income.

• At the micro level, access to finance improves income opportunities and reduces poverty. It allows new business investments, helps entrepreneurs manage risks, and allows households to invest in education, housing and smooth consumption when affected by adverse shocks.
