This paper explores the experience in Tajikistan, where a number of different types of financial service providers and civil society organizations play an important role in meeting a variety of financial service needs and market segments. It proposes that in order to increase financial inclusion, community-based providers and collective organizations are necessary to overcome high costs and cumbersome procedures required by regulated providers and thereby contribute to the development of the financial system.
