Around the world there are 2 billion ‘unbanked’ people – individuals without access to formal financial services. There are also 200 million micro, small and mid-size businesses in growth markets that lack access to savings and credit, while those that do have access often pay high fees for a limited range of products. Fintech can help in expanding access to finance and equalize the opportunities. The Arab Fintech Forum will address the challenges and opportunities of the regional fintech ecosystem.”
