FinAccess is a series of household surveys that measure the access, usage, quality and impact of financial services in Kenya. The five surveys so far – 2006, 2009, 2013, 2016 and 2019 – can help policymakers identify barriers to financial inclusion in Kenya. Private sector actors will also find the information useful for identifying new market opportunities.
