Sound, deep, and efficient financial sectors are vital for high sustained, private sector-led growth. But financial sectors in their current form pose major problems for the economies of sub Saharan Africa (SSA).

Most households cannot build formal savings, so their ability to escape poverty by investing in education or housing is limited.
