By Zoot – New Information Has Come To Light


Across the world, huge numbers of individuals lack access to basic banking services.

In the US, the underbanked and unbanked (U/U) demographic is just under a quarter of the population. That equates to almost 75 million Americans who have no bank services, or who are using alternative means (like payday loans, check cashing services or other products) to manage their financial lives. Whether those folks are consciously avoiding banks, or simply unable to obtain access to the account and credit products they need, financial institutions (FIs) have options available to work with them.
