Women’s Financial Inclusion Toolkit – Paving the Way for Women’s Economic Empowerment

Financial inclusion is a catalyst towards growth and opportunity. It is therefore not surprising that it features as a target in eight of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals. It is associated with reducing poverty, increasing resilience, and improving economic growth, innovation, and family well-being. Beyond supporting these overarching goals, women’s financial inclusion crucially also contributes to women’s economic empowerment and gender equality. ​The purpose of this toolkit is to help practitioners working in developing countries advance women’s financial inclusion and navigate the existing barriers.
