This information is essential for identifying weaknesses in financial market development and serves as a basis for elaborating effective inclusion strategies. However, the levels of inclusion, in the region, in all its dimensions continue to be low, although with substantial differences among the economies. A considerable amount of the population continues to use the informal financial sector for making their transactions, particularly loans.
