If branch density is measured in terms of geographic area, the positive relation overall between per capita GDP and branch density remains.

Also, the criterion of small size is often applied, particularly to producers, so that micro- or smallscale entrepreneurs are often identified as facing special difficulties in gaining access to financial services, especially credit.
