CGAP study: Ghana, Rwanda on the road to financial inclusion

A recent financial inclusion survey by the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) showed 17 percent of Ghana's and Rwanda's adult citizens use mobile money accounts.

The survey also showed these accounts were being used by people in Africa's most rural areas - and in some cases, by people who were living on less than $2.50 a day. The survey showed 61 percent of Rwanda's mobile money account were held by people in rural areas where 72 percent of the population lives on less than $2.50 a day.

CGAP officials said these statistics illustrate progress being made to make people in Africa's most rural areas part of the continent's financial inclusion.
