NFIS Statistics

The goal of the National Financial Inclusion Strategy (NFIS) is to advance the state of financial inclusion in Belize, with every individual and enterprise in Belize being equipped to make full use of accessible, quality, and affordable financial services.

The Financial Inclusion Survey (a module in the Statistical Institute of Belize's Labour Force Survey) plays a vital role in achieving this by gathering essential data that will inform the design, implementation, and evaluation of financial inclusion policies and initiatives. This survey will be conducted periodically to allow analysis of trends over time. Using April 2019 financial access survey results, the Inter-American Development Bank developed  granular estimates of financial access at the smallest geographical level known as Enumeration Districts using Machine Learning Based Small Area Estimation.
