Carol Realini and Karl Mehta’s Financial Inclusion Book is more than the story of 2.5 billion unbanked people. It tells the stories of entrepreneurs at the forefront of Financial Technology (FinTech)—one of the hottest global industries. FinTech companies offer digital solutions for mobile money, credit scoring, insurance, alternative currencies like Bitcoin, solar energy, and small business financing.
The book also reveals the interplay of mobile operators, government regulators, merchants and billions of people using the power of mobile phones. In faraway lands, without bank branches and ATM’s, Realini and Mehta paint pictures of life in Africa, India, the Philippines, Bangladesh, and countries not on your radar.
In the author’s words about their financial inclusion book:
We’ve revealed both the extent of financial exclusion at the bottom of the pyramid and have seen the proliferation of imaginative solutions that entrepreneurs are introducing around the world. It’s an exciting time we live in, full of the promise of increased economic opportunity for everyone. In nearly every corner of the globe, dedicated visionaries combine new technologies with social responsibility to open doors that for centuries have been closed. Going forward, we expect that the change will accelerate.”
The goal of this book is to not only describe and celebrate efforts to bring financial inclusion to the bottom of the pyramid—and to make the pyramid a little less steep!—but to serve as a resource for anyone who wants to contribute to the cause.
