Stress on Shari’ah-compliant services for financial inclusion
Speakers at the seminar titled "Agriculture and Micro Insurance: Experience in Afro-Asian Region" discussed the need for Shari'ah-compliant financial services, including Takaful insurance. One speaker said that many poor Muslims are financially excluded because of both involuntary and voluntary reasons. Therefore, providing Shari'ah-compliant financial services is needed to accelerate financial inclusion. At the same session, the speakers also discussed about how Takful (Islamic) insurance can solve challenges in the micro-insurance sector.
