Women’s World Banking is the global leader in women’s financial inclusion. Rooted in its deep understanding of the women’s market, Women’s World Banking tackles financial inclusion in three interconnected ways: first, by partnering with financial services providers to develop scalable market-driven solutions; second, through its gender-lens private equity fund; and, finally, because diverse institutions are proven to be stronger, Women’s World Banking builds institutional capacity through leadership and diversity programs. Through this holistic approach and the organization’s global reach of 49 institutions in 32 countries, Women’s World Banking accelerates economic opportunity for low-income women and growth for financial service providers in the emerging markets.
