Financial Access Survey


The "Access to Finance Project" collects annual geographic and demographic data on access to basic consumer financial services worldwide.

This is done through the identification and development of appropriate data that are comparable across countries and over time collected by means of periodic surveys. Data will be collected on the geographical and demographical outreach of financial services. The outreach of financial services is proxied by bank branch network, availability of automated teller machines, and by four key financial instruments: deposits, loans, debt securities issued, and insurance.
