Abstract

Nigeria is a key regional player in West Africa with approximately 202 million people: one of the largest populations of youth in the world. This is an enormous market for services. However, there is a low level of financial inclusion. A large proportion of the Nigerian population still live in areas where they do not have sufficient access to financial services like banks, and this makes them financially vulnerable. This working paper highlights how Nigerian banks are using technology to enhance financial inclusion in Nigeria. The paper aims to contribute to literature on financial inclusion, financial vulnerability and financial technology from the point of view of an emerging economy.
