Financial inclusion is a pillar of economic development.
Access to credit allows households to buy insurance, helping them to build resilience against unforeseen shocks. Access to finance also allows households to invest in work, education and health. CID researchers investigate the mechanisms that enhance financial development and its consequences at both the macroeconomic and microeconomic level.
