Are Youth-Inclusive Financial Services in MENA a Driver of Financial inclusion?

Making Cents International

In a mid-March Youth Financial Inclusion Workshop for the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region, organized by Silatech and CGAP, participants debated how to respond to staggeringly low financial inclusion among youth ages 15-24, a population that hold financial accounts at less than half the rate of the developing economy average. Discussion centered on the value of efforts to expand and target youth access. Tim Nourse, of Making Cents International, shared the emerging recommendations that respond to the debate.

What happened during the CGAP-Silatech Youth MENA Financial Inclusion Workshop in Morocco?

Depuis plus d’une génération, la région MENA (Moyen-Orient / Afrique du Nord) connaît le taux de chômage des jeunes le plus élevé du monde, reflétant des décennies d’exclusion économique et financière de ces mêmes jeunes. Selon la Banque Mondiale, l’analyse des données globales de la base Findex (Demirgüç-Kunt et Klapper, 2012) révèle que seuls 13% des jeunes (15-24 ans) de la région MENA sont titulaires d’un compte auprès d’une institution financière formelle, alors que la moyenne mondiale se situe à 37% et à 17% pour la région la plus proche, l’Afrique Subsaharienne.
