The principle of financial inclusion has assumed greater level of importance in recent times due to its perceived importance as a driver of economic growth. Achieving pervasive financial inclusion has remained a global challenge with as much as 54.0% of adults worldwide are being financially excluded. Enhancing Financial Innovation & Access (EFInA) is a financial sector development organization that promotes financial inclusion in Nigeria. The 2018 EFInA Access to Financial Services survey findings reveal that with a population of over 190 million people in Nigeria, 73.2 million, which is 36.8% of adult Nigerians are financially excluded. Financial inclusion has therefore become an explicit strategy for accelerated economic growth and it is critical for achieving inclusive growth in a country. The realization, in the recent past, was the major impetus for the adoption of policies and measures aimed at growing global financial inclusion as a means of promoting world economic prosperity. In 2012, the CBN launched the Nigerian National Financial Inclusion Strategy (NFIS) and set the target to reduce the percentage of adult Nigerians excluded from access to financial services from 46.3% in 2010 to 20% in 2020. Under the new policies of financial inclusion, excluded Nigerian adults can now be included in Money Lending, Investment, Payments & Banking.
