Cambodia has experienced rapid poverty reduction and fast economic growth accompanied by an accelerated rate of financial inclusion. 59% of the adult population has some sort of access to formal finance. Few people save in the formal financial sector (10%).
Among MSMEs financial inclusion remains low; 66% identified access to finance as an obstacle to running their businesses. This is particularly critical for the women-led businesses, representing almost a half of the economy. High levels of mobile phone and internet penetration and increased access to mobile money help accelerate digital financial inclusion.
