Reach, Benefit and Empower Women with Financial Services

This paper, showcases the importance of appropriate financial services for women to increase female entrepreneurship in agriculture and to secure the highly necessary agricultural growth. We aim to encourage the NpM members (inclusive finance investors) and other professionals working in the financial sector to ensure that women are reached by financial services, but also to ensure that women benefit and that they are empowered.

Platform for Inclusive Finance
NpM is a member platform for Dutch investors in the worldwide inclusive finance sector, like development organisations, social investors and commercial banks. Together with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and our members, we are committed to expanding access to affordable financial services worldwide. We believe in a clear link between financial inclusion and development. Access to financial services offers people the possibility to improve their living standards, which in turn reduces inequality. Inclusive finance can result in poverty alleviation, job creation, food security, gender equality, and equitable growth. It is our mission to increase the effectiveness of our members’ inclusive finance investments and activities. Therefore, we promote effective partnerships to combine efforts, and complement expertise and objectives. In addition, we support our members’ in contributing to the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
