FinScope 2012 provided Rwanda’s financial sector with a broad map of financial access and usage trends across the country’s adult population. This Financial Diaries research—commissioned by Access to Finance Rwanda (AFR) and Visa Inc. (Visa)—sought to complement these findings by taking a deeper look at individual consumers’ behaviors and motivations to better understand the drivers of the trends we observe in FinScope. The Financial Diaries in Rwanda started in August 2012 and ended in February 2013.
