Predictions of increasing inequality within the nation have brought about concerns, for which efforts toward financial inclusion have been on the rise. Particularly, the COVID 19 pandemic brought with it a dire need for digitizing financial services in Bangladesh bringing forth innovative platforms such as bKash, Rocket, among others.
