Key Highlights
The Latvian government and central bank has taken a number of initiatives in the form of programs and policies to bring a larger proportion of the population into the formal financial system. For instance, the Financial and Capital Market Commission (FCMC), Ministry of Education and Science, National Centre for Education, BA School of Business and Finance, Consumer Rights Protection Centre, Association of Commercial Banks of Latvia and Latvian Insurers Association collectively formulated the National Strategy for Financial Literacy 2014-2020, with the objective of creating awareness regarding the benefits of financial products and services among Latvians through campaigns and programs. The strategy is supported by the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economics and the Bank of Latvia. Improvements in payment infrastructure, including the adoption of contactless technology, supported the growth of payment cards. Digital security company Gemalto introduced contactless cards in 2013 for SEB; the first contactless card deployed in the Baltic region. The card is EMV-compliant, and can be used for cash-free travel on local buses in Latvia. The card can also be used by students to make contactless payments at school canteens and vending machines. In June 2015, Citadele Bank introduced contactless payment cards with electronic ticket (e-ticket) functionality, allowing consumers to pay for public transportation. The amount paid for the trip is deducted from the customer's bank account, which is linked to the card. The card can also be used to make cash withdrawals at automatic teller machines (ATMs) and to pay for products at point of sale (POS) terminals. To encourage small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) to accept electronic payments, banks are offering business loans dependant on the volume of transactions carried out at POS terminals. Citadele Banka launched an SME lending program in December 2015, offering micro-loans to retailers. Through this program, retailers are offered a US$22,237.8 (EUR20,000) credit facility based on the volume of transactions conducted at their POS terminals. As of 2015, Citadele Banka had issued micro-loans to 49 companies.
