Topic: Women’s financial inclusion
Pre-conference event of the MFC Annual Conference
Globally, 2 billion people remain unbanked and women lag behind men in terms of access to formal accounts, credit and savings products. 80% of women-owned small businesses have unmet credit needs, resulting in a credit gap of up to $320 billion. Closing the gender gap in financial inclusion could help reduce poverty and foster economic growth worldwide.

FinEquity provides CGAP facilitated platforms to share experiences, identify key challenges, document and discuss emerging good practices, and solve common problems associated with increasing equitable access to and use of a broad range of financial services.
