Survey Report: SME Finance Policies for MSMEs Owned by Women and Women Entrepreneurs

Women’s  financial inclusion is at the top of AFI’s global policy agenda. Since 2014, AFI has worked exhaustively to promote  financial inclusion and bridge the gender gap.

The session also found that SME finance policies are a good way to bridge the gender gap in financial inclusion, since most SMEs are managed or owned by women.
