Our southern neighbors have a fast growing economy, but also a fast growing poverty rate. The coronavirus has had a negative impact on both of these things. The growth rate has decreased while the poverty rate has increased to 56%. The Mexican economy is large and predominantly known for its car and oil industries. Women play a large role in the informal economy and a lot of this work is unpaid; because of this women have gone on strike to advocate for their rights. In terms of financial inclusion, less than half of Mexicans have access to a bank account. Therefore, it is a pressing issue to provide help to those who don't have access to financial services in order to help relieve poverty.
