Financial Inclusion: From Theory Into Action
One of the most popular themes in financial inclusion for the past decade or so has involved financial education, sometimes also referred to as financial literacy training. Despite its popularity, the impact of training on people’s actual financial behavior is quite limited because of the real difficulties of putting learning into action. MetLife Foundation’s strategy stresses practical, hands-on solutions that can help low-income people succeed in improving their financial lives—and that financial institutions can deliver sustainably.
The true impact of MetLife Foundation's financial inclusion commitment is best told through the individual stories of those that take what they learn and transform their lives.
