According to the Access to Finance 2020 survey report by EFINA, there are 38.1 million adult Nigerians excluded from financial services and at 9 Payment Service Bank, we are closing this gap by providing inclusive financial services for all Nigerians.
As architects of financial inclusion in Nigeria, we are committed to creating more access points for people at the bottom of the pyramid to access financial services through our vast and widespread agent network. In doing this, we are partnering with the government and all other stakeholders to ensure greater economic stability and inclusion for all Nigerians.
Financial literacy is being able to make informed judgements and take effective decisions regarding the use and management of money. When a vast majority of the Nigerian population is financially literate that they can participate in the formal financial system, get financially included and thereby contribute to the financial and economic development of Nigeria.
We conduct mass financial literacy awareness and sensitisation campaigns through our nationwide agent network.
Social Investment Programmes.
The Federal Government of Nigeria established the National Social Investments Programmes (NSIP) in 2016, to tackle poverty and hunger across the country. The suite of programmes under the NSIP focuses on ensuring a more equitable distribution of resources to vulnerable populations, including children, youth and women.
We partner with the government on conditional cash transfers and other social investment programmes.
