The Use Of Biometrics Means Improved Financial Inclusivity

The achievement of financial inclusion comes with its own unique challenges which are often not easy to overcome. However, the use of digital technology such as biometric fingerprint authentication, means being able to offer financial services to individuals with low levels of literacy, or who lack access to the documentation that is usually needed to benefit from financial service offerings. Similarly, biometric authentication enables those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, dementia or impaired vision to access, store, and make use of their funds. ⠀

The result of offering biometric payment authentication technology to those individuals who have previously found financial services difficult to access, is a more financially equitable and inclusive population. While there are many complex issues associated with financial inclusion, biometric authentication technology offers a solution which can vastly change the current situation.⠀
