FinAccess Household Survey

April 3rd, 2019

The FinAccess Household Survey, commonly referred to as FinAccess, is a series of surveys jointly conducted by the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK), the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) and FSD Kenya every two to three years to establish the level of financial inclusion, as well as to measure the drivers and usage of financial services in Kenya.

The five surveys so far—in 2006, 2009, 2013, 2016 and 2019—help policymakers identify barriers to financial inclusion in Kenya. Private sector actors also find the information useful for identifying new market opportunities.
