Financial Solutions for Smallholders in Nigeria
Financial inclusion in Nigeria has been improving, with the adult population being served by financial institutions going from 30 percent in 2011 to 44 percent in 2014, according to the Global Findex. However, large segments of the population remain financially excluded. Of an estimated 15 million smallholder families in Nigeria, CGAP finds that only about 26 percent of them are financially included.
In this webinar, CGAP presented findings from our nationwide survey of smallholder households in Nigeria - the first survey of its kind in the country. Speakers discussed the implications of CGAP's findings for the growing number of local initiatives that promote financial solutions for the rural poor.
