Author

  • Arias, Daniela.

Abstract

The basic premise of this study is that promoting financial inclusion is one of the most effective ways in which a central bank can support economic growth and productive employment creation. The study shows that the scope of the government's financial inclusion programme in Ecuador is wide and varied. It then proceeds to encapsulate the main objectives of the financial inclusion policy and identify the main actors involved in its execution.
