Northampton, MA --News Direct-- The Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic brought growth in digital payments, bolstering financial inclusion.

The newly released Global Findex Database 2022 shows that in developing economies, the share of adults making or receiving digital payments has increased—from 35 percent in 2014 to 57 percent in 2021.

Technology and innovation have fueled leaps in account ownership and usage across the globe. While ownership and usage are more inclusive of women and poor adults, gaps remain.

Through the robust partnership between private companies, government institutions and development agencies, we can build on progress and ensure everyone has the financial tools and networks to reach their potential and achieve sustained financial security.
