Personas of Women Entrepreneurs

Reflections of social norms amongst women Syrian entrepreneurs in Turkey

This slide deck is a supplement to the official CGAP Blog "Personas Show How Social Norms Impact Women’s Financial Inclusion" (December 2020).

As the financial inclusion sector becomes increasingly intentional in incorporating social norms into their work, personas can serve as a useful tool to guide programing.

These four personas of Syrian women entrepreneurs in Southeastern Turkey have been compiled with insights from a social norms diagnostic conducted over the course of eight months between December 2018 and August 2019 in Gaziantep, Southeastern Turkey. A total of 123 men and women, mostly of Syrian Arab origin, were spoken to over the course of the study.
