It is used for a spiritual elevation, to connect with the divine and be free from attachment. It is a chant that will serves as an anchor in time of trouble and keep them on their spiritual path.

Namu Myoho Renge Kyo is not used for material gains but it is the belief of practitioners that by reciting it daily, meditating and having a good life, life will be easier and good things will happen to the righteous person. This might include, or not, financial gains. It is not meant to be a magic formula to attract money to you.
