Financial inclusion should be thought of as something that is required beyond the wealthy nations.  The current financial system is broken, poorly designed, and antiquated.  Financial service providers tend to overlook how broken and fragmented that the current system is, thereby making it impossible to serve the needs of many in the emerging markets.  There is only an increase in the number of people without access to financial services.

Unbanked Adults have a very difficult time to make their way to the employment or commercial market.  Ripple Impact are trying to make it possible for them to leverage the promise facilitated by financial technology.”

Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert tweeted:  “Ripple (XRP) through Ripple Swell are empowering economic growth globally by making possible financial inclusion for unbanked adults.“
