The Use of Financial Inclusion Data Country Case Study: Mexico

Download File(s):

The financial inclusion situation in Mexico required policy development to address the disparities in usage and reach of financial services between urban and rural areas. The study describes the formation of the national coordinating body for financial inclusion and the development of a comprehensive data framework to inform policy. The banking agents, mobile payments and tiered-risk account policies and regulations introduced to increase financial inclusion, particularly in the under-served areas, are described. The effects of these interventions are quantified through appropriate data and the remaining challenges to improve the situation are identified.
