  • An Innovative Approach to Enable Financial Capability

    By Pramit Jhaveri, Citi Country Officer, India October 30, 2014 11:59 AM

    Last month, India Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi announced his vision to end 'financial untouchability' in the country by providing universal access to banking. The target is to open 75 million new savings accounts in six months, supported by a massive financial literacy drive. Barely 40 percent of Indians currently have access to formal banking, making this initiative a national imperative.

    And I am proud that Citi is supporting his vision. Citi India, with support from Citi Foundation, has been proactively supporting financial education and inclusion programs across the country. In 2004, Citi Foundation, SEWA Bank, Women's World Bank and Coady International Institute established the Citi Center for Financial Literacy, which has since provided financial education to an estimated 800,000 low-income women.
