Approximately 41 percent of Moroccan adults use a formal financial product or service. This places Morocco well above the average level of financial inclusion in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as above the average level in lower middle income countries (18 percent and 28 percent, respectively). Bank accounts are the most commonly used financial product, with 28 percent of adults reporting having a deposit or checking account. Microfinance institutions (MFIs) currently reach about five percent of the adult population, a finding consistent with supply-side data. Insurance is used by around 24 percent of the adult population in Morocco which is mainly due to mandatory insurance classes. Allowing, and advocating for branchless banking offers the potential to further expand the coverage of financial services and to reach the poor, rural dwellers, and women. Moreover, initiatives to bring women into the financial sector need to reveal and take into account, the substantial differences which can exist between men and women in their access, needs, and preferences of financial services.
