Since we’ve seen this blog’s page views more than double lately, it seems like the right time to flag a resource for our new readers: the Center’s Financial Inclusion Glossary.
Why bother creating an 87-entry glossary? In order to achieve full financial inclusion we must agree on what it means. Defining financial inclusion requires building out a shared language and describing how various concepts shape the expansion of financial services to all. The glossary represents our effort to facilitate consensus and collaboration by defining terms essential for discussing and constructing strategies towards financial inclusion.
Of course, defining some of these terms can be tricky. Feel free to share your thoughts about what works for you – and what doesn’t – in the comments section below.
