Limited provision of financial services cannot be interpreted simply as an unwillingness to provide such services. Lending to some segments, especially the very poor, may be very risky, because households at the margins of financial and cash flow resources may have real difficulty in repaying loans, or be tempted to not repay at all.

Financial exclusion—the inability to gain access to necessary financial services in an appropriate form—can result from difficulties relating to conditions, prices, or marketing of financial services, or from self-exclusion by marginalized populations, often in response to negative experiences or perceptions (Sinclair 2001).
