Who is Rural Inclusion
Rural Inclusion is a UK based non-profit organisation which focuses on driving digital financial inclusion in rural communities worldwide through innovative education and research.
The Rural Inclusion vision is “financial inclusion for all”, with individuals in rural communities having the tools and knowledge to create sustainable economic growth, support their families and maintain healthy lives.
As the World Bank defines, “financial inclusion means that individuals and businesses have access to useful and affordable financial products and services that meet their needs – transactions, payments, savings, credit and insurance – delivered in a responsible and sustainable way.”
We are attempting to bridge the gap between rural consumers and financial providers to drive digital financial inclusion in regions that are currently largely excluded from the formal economy in developing countries.

As defined by the UN, “The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities while tackling climate change and environmental protection.”
