Globally, 2 billion people remain unbanked and women lag behind men in terms of access to formal accounts, credit and savings products. 80% of women-owned small businesses have unmet credit needs, resulting in a credit gap of up to $320 billion. Closing the gender gap in financial inclusion could help reduce poverty and foster economic growth worldwide. FinEquity is a global community of practice to advance women's financial inclusion.
The FinEquity Spring Member Meeting will allow the members to share and learn about innovations in women’s financial inclusion, social norms, data measurement frameworks and more. It is an opportunity for FinEquity members to learn from peers and help shape the strategic direction of the FinEquity community.
The FinEquity meeting will be part of the MFC Annual Conference as a pre-conference event.
