This AFI document provides ways to optimize agent networks to increase women’s financial inclusion in Nigeria, based on their strategy to close the gender gap. The strategy seeks to:

  • To double the number of female financial services agents between 2022 and 2024.
  • To increase the ratio of female to male financial services agents from 15:85 to 35:65 by 2024.
  • To promote the innovation and deployment of at least 10 gender-centric financial products or interventions that actively leverage agent networks.
  • To ensure that stakeholders pursue geographically tailored solutions.
