Have you ever thought about how much banking has changed over the last couple of decades?
For many of us, the days of going to the bank for many of our financial transactions has become a rare event. With the introduction of Interac and on-line banking services, and the wide spread use and acceptance of these, our banking tasks have become much faster and more convenient. Now consider the estimated 1.7 billion adults who don’t even have access to a bank account.
How would our lives be different if we didn’t have access to the many banking services available in our society?
(Consider writing your thoughts down in your Lenten journal.)
