- 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.
