The current indicator (DHS-7 Qtn 123 HOUSEHOLD QUESTIONNAIRE) takes only the bank account as the measure of access to financial resources. This can underestimate the prevalence of access to financial resources especially in developing countries, more importantly in sub-Saharan Africa. The majority of people have mobile wallets which offer many similar services to banks.
