​Improving financial inclusion for financial institutions requires enhancing outreach to the untapped population in remote and inaccessible areas, notably in rural parts. This can happen through the increase of distribution channels in these areas and remote rural areas. It can also happen through the offer of adapted products to segments which are not well served such as young people. These already are or will form the bulk of clients of financial institutions in a close future. Addressing the needs of young people can be a way to combat fierce competition due to the opening of the economy. Furthermore, technology at distribution channels increasingly refers to the use of mobile phone for payments and for banking transactions, which is a tool young people are more than familiar with.
