IFC and AIA Sri Lanka Partner to Increase Sri Lankan Women's Access to Insurance, Create More Jobs

Sri Lankan women, including female entrepreneurs, are expected to have increased access to insurance and more of a chance of a job in the insurance industry, in the wake of an agreement between IFC, a member of the World Bank Group and AIA Sri Lanka —subsidiary of the life insurance group, AIA Group.

Under the agreement, IFC will help AIA Sri Lanka develop a women's insurance program strategy and suitable products for Sri Lankan women. In a country where very few women have insurance, the move will boost women's access to insurance and help mitigate their risks.
