December 2014

EFInA has unveiled results of the Access to Financial Services in Nigeria 2014 survey. The nationally-representative survey showed that the number of banked adults has increased to 33.9 million, or 36.3% of the adult population. However, rates of financial exclusion remain high; 36.9 million adults (39.5% of the adult population) have no access to financial services.

The survey also contains information about Nigerian adults’ understanding and perceptions of financial services, current financial behaviours (such as saving, borrowing, sending remittances, etc), income sources and levels, and usage of a range of financial services, including mobile money, insurance, microfinance, informal financial services, and more.
