Access to and use of financial services in Latin America and the Caribbean has improved in recent years, but not everyone has benefited equally. Vulnerable populations such as indigenous peoples, Afro-descendant groups, older adults, women, and micro, small or medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) face barriers to incorporating financial services into their daily savings, investment, and digital payment needs.

Consult our knowledge repository to understand the needs and barriers to financial inclusion for these groups, and potential solutions.
