Sri Lanka: IFC Supports Commercial Bank of Ceylon to Expand Access to Finance for Women and Women-Owned Small Businesses

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, will support Commercial Bank of Ceylon (ComBank), Sri Lanka’s largest commercial bank, to develop more specially-designed products and services for women, as part of a move to help boost access to finance for women, especially those who own small and medium sized businesses (SMEs).

The advisory assistance to ComBank is part of IFC’s Banking on Women (BOW) program, which is supported by the government of Australia under the IFC-DFAT Women in Work program.
