Carol Realini and Karl Mehta, co-authors, invite you to discover their informative, compelling financial inclusion book: Financial Inclusion at the Bottom of the Pyramid. As incredible as it may seem in this hyper-connected, technologically advanced era, half the planet’s population exist as “Financial nomads.” They don’t have traditional banking services.
Did you realize that half the planet’s people are “financial nomads?” No traditional banking services. They live on earned cash, trade with cash, hide cash under mattresses. 2.5 billion unbanked persons without ATM’s around the corner. Many live in poverty, spread across Africa, Asia, and South America. Emerging economies.
Think of a financial pyramid. These 2.5 billion live at the bottom of it, trying to climb higher throughout their lives.
Wealthier people, living in developed countries, are near the pyramid’s top. Lots of banks, ATM’s, financial services. Financial security and services are abundant.

Financial Technology (FinTech) Innovations
But times are changing rapidly. Despite global uncertainty, financial technology (FinTech), and mobile communications have begun creating exciting financial services for the unbanked…in emerging and developed countries…from Kenya to India, the Philippines to the U.S. and Europe.
Financial inclusion for all is indeed within our reach.”
Karl Mehta and Carol Realini now propose a vision for a better world
…and a blueprint to get there.
