#Financial Services


Digital financial services can bring major benefits to low-income workers around the world. However, uptake of these services has been slow in some areas because of cultural and logistical barriers. BSR and FHI 360 have jointly investigated the challenges and opportunities around digital financial services in Bangladesh, and have published their findings in a new report.

At this event, BSR and FHI 360 will share the learnings from the report and will engage with business and technical experts to explore pathways to accelerate uptake of digital financial services. In addition, a number of technical experts will join a panel to offer perspectives on the global move towards wage digitization.
