Re: "... system that breaks down financial barriers for billions of people."

Read the background to the song 'Sixteen tons'.

The financial barriers corporations such as Facebook would like to break down are those we erected to try to protect ourselves from debt slavery. They're not barriers restricting the users : they're barriers protecting them.

So yes, they are proposing to return some of that money to users. Temporarily, in order to build up debt.
