Additional Information

People living in poverty have had issues with accessing banks.
Financial inclusion is a building block of the solution to the brutal reality for Europeans minorities exposed by the much higher than average COVID-19 impact, not receiving stimulus checks or benefits.

Access to the financial system stimulates economic growth, brings financial stability and provides wealth building tools. The fastest and most impactful route to financial inclusion of the unbanked is through legislation, regulation, and proven technologies integrated with the existing financial system.
