Opportunity to collaborate in an exercise involving big data, market segmentation, and the challenge of estimating market potential for an individual institution
As our faculty will already know, the World Bank Group has issued two statistical data sets containing financial inclusion statistics along a multitude of indicators for individual countries. The indicators presented are superbly interesting, and some of this data has never been seen on such a global scale before, such as percentage of adults in a particular country or region who borrowed for education or school fees, or who received remittances via mobile phone. The entire online database is available here and the data can be downloaded and used for analytical purposes. The book version of FINDEX is Little Data Book on Financial Inclusion.
