Rough Outline:

Disrupting Finance. The Unbanked and Underbanked in NYC

11% or 350,000 people in New York City are Unbanked (have no bank account) a further 22% or 700,000 people are Underbanked.
This lack of access to financial services for the most vulnerable encourages a cycle of poverty.
What are the reasons for being Unbanked or Underbanked, How can this be solved; and What are our institutions doing right now including different payment platforms, and how people use them?

“Bank transfers, e-wallets, cash-based payments, and other local payment methods have previously been called alternative payment methods. But they are no longer the alternative; they are the norm for most of the world.” - James Booth, Finance Monthly
