Gender Inclusive Finance Factsheet

Despite overall progress in financial inclusion, women are still disproportionately excluded from the formal financial system. According to 2017 Global Findex Data, 65 percent of women had an account compared to 72 percent of men. This gender gap has remained persistent at 9 percentage points for developing economies since 2011. Globally, women also made up more than half of the world’s unbanked. Following the endorsement of the Denarau Action Plan, find out what AFI member institutions have been doing to halve the FI gender gap in their own jurisdiction.
