2015 FinAccess geospatial launch

The governor of the Central Bank of Kenya, Dr Patrick Ngugi Njoroge launched the new GIS data maps at the Hilton Hotel in Nairobi on 29 October, an event attended by about 70 people. He noted that  the Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project Report, 2015 ranked Kenya as the top-scoring country in financial inclusion world-wide. He however pointed out the fact that enhanced financial inclusion anchored on dynamic innovations brings forth some risks that Kenya needed to manage so that it does not negate the success so far achieved. This would help in reducing the number of fraud cases experienced by providers as identified from the survey findings.
