Nathan London has launched an interactive data hub with partners CGAP and Novix, allowing a greater insight into smallholder families’ financial habits across several countries including Bangladesh, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Uganda.
This interactive data hub provides over 300,000 data points, providing a plethora of data that can be utilized by organizations and businesses wishing to reach low-income, unbanked and underbanked households and businesses with new financial products and services.
The hub has been specifically designed in an easy-to-understand layout, allowing users to access data and digest the information with interactive dashboards by country. The hub also provides in-depth downloadable resources such as user guides and analysis for those wishing to dig deeper into the research findings. Users can make their own segmentations and comparisons between different populations; for example, commercial smallholders vs. subsistence farmers.
“With more than 2 billion people worldwide without formal banking services,” comments Amalia Johnsson, Head of Financial Sector Development at Nathan, “improving access to financial products and services such as loan, saving and insurance products, is a crucial step in achieving a number of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
“We are proud to have designed a data hub which allows those not working as data scientists to extract and utilize this resource to its fullest capabilities. We believe that in order to improve financial inclusion, we must reach new stakeholders and partners that have the potential to design a new wave of transformative financial products and services for the most vulnerable and marginalised in societies.”
