Sex-Disaggregated Data Toolkit: How to Leverage Sex-Disaggregated Financial Inclusion Data to Accelerate Women’s Financial Inclusion

This AFI Financial Inclusion Data (FID) Working Group Guideline Note outlines steps to using supply and demand side sex-disaggregated data to close the financial inclusion gender gap based on the experience of AFI Member institutions in a range of countries including: Bangladesh, Burundi, Costa Rica, Chile, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Haiti, Malaysia, Morocco, Rwanda, Samoa, Senegal, Solomon Islands, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

This blog post gives an example of how gender-specific data collected was used by Bank of Zambia to identify key barriers facing women in accessing financial services, and allowed for greater understanding of the gender gap and the development of policies to financially include women.

AFI is the world’s leading organisation on financial inclusion policy and regulation. A member-owned network, we promote and develop evidence-based policy solutions that improve the loves of the poor through the power of financial inclusion.
