Enabling Women’s Financial Inclusion through Digital Financial Literacy
A synthesis of FinEquity members’ insights
This brief is a FinEquity community effort and it is meant to help the financial inclusion community understand digital financial literacy and better address this component of the digital financial services gender gap. The synthesis is organized by enablers (literacy, numeracy, access, awareness and design) and their associated challenges, and highlights the cross-cutting constraint (social norms). This framework helps unpack the different dimensions of digital financial literacy (DFL) and demonstrate why they should not be tackled in isolation as they are very much connected. The brief also includes four case studies of organizations addressing DFL in their work in countries such as Cambodia, Bangladesh, and Ghana.
