Ingenuity is the theme of ensuring financial inclusion for all.
Submission Procedure for FIN-Biz
The authors should write for a broader audience with diverse backgrounds. Avoiding technical jargons helps to reach out to the general readers. FIN-Biz discourages highly technical analysis; rather, the focus should be on the findings/results and their implications.
How to submit

Charts, tables, and any other illustrations should be placed within the article, but must be supplied separately as indicated below. Charts should be in Excel files, accompanied by data. Create separate files for text, tables, and charts. When accepted for publication, FIN-Biz instills its in-house design layout. FIN-Biz may use other suitable images within the article.
