It includes a stocktaking and forward-looking exercise that shows viable paths to financial sector deepening and broadening. It represents an effort to document existing and new trends in Africa’s financial sectors, taking into account Africa’s many different experiences.Broad policy messages are outlined for financial systems in Africa on the premise that one size does not fit all. The book also discusses specific segments of the financial sector, such as rural and housing finance; it does not, however, offer anexhaustive and conclusive coverage of these segments.
