The data was analyzed by using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) in descriptive statistics and Excel Software. The result showed significance in financial access (F= 43.352 P= .000) with r-value (r= 949**) and financial depth (F= 42.973 P= .000) with r-value (r= 925**) while financial efficiency and stability showed insignificance.
