Needs Assessment: People With Disabilities' Access to Financial Education and Finance in Cambodia
People with disabilities make up at least 10 percent of Cambodia's population who frequently experience social and economic exclusion. Studies from other countries show that building the capacity of people with disabilities to use financial services can break the cycle of disability and poverty. This needs assessment was designed to test the assumption that people with disabilities in Cambodia lack financial literacy and confidence, and to gain understanding of their needs and desire for financial services.
The results from the study will inform the design of the "Education & Access -Responsible Service for People with Disabilities" project, which aims to improve access for people with disabilities to responsible finance to catalyze entrepreneurial activity and generate sustainable incomes.
