The Role Regulators Play in Closing the Financial Inclusion Gender Gap: A Case Study of Egypt

Being the third largest population in Africa, Egypt has made significant progress in the financial inclusion of both men and women in the past decade.

The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) led several initiatives that contributed to advancing women’s financial inclusion, reflecting a growth of 210 percent in women’s transaction account ownership.

The Egyptian government and CBE are taking steady steps towards more gender equity, economic empowerment, and financial inclusion, in pursuit of an inclusive society.
