About Inclusive Growth

Inclusive growth ensures the benefits of a growing economy extend to all segments of society.  Unleashing people’s economic potential starts with connecting them to the vital networks that power the modern economy.

Access to and integration into these networks increase their productivity, which can set in motion a virtuous cycle of sustained poverty reduction and inclusive growth—we call this democratizing productivity.

A key component of inclusive growth is financial inclusion, which connects people to secure ways for receiving, storing and managing money. While financial inclusion is a point of entry to lift people and markets out of poverty, inclusive growth is the key to move them towards shared prosperity.
