This blog series takes a deep-dive into the demand and supply-side data sets on financial inclusion, using a gender lens to understand data availability, limitations, and challenges. The blogs are based on a series of online learning events hosted by the Women's Financial Inclusion Community of Practice, which aim to shed light on existing sex-disaggregated data in financial inclusion.
