without access to banks
Explanation:
In articles about microfinance, this is the phrase that is often used; I've never seen 'disbanked" or "unbanked" ...

Commercial credit historically has been unavailable to the very poor. Even if those living in poverty had access to a bank, without collateral it is hard to get credit from the traditional banking system.
