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

In the last decade, Honduras has made great strides on women’s financial access. 

By 2017, the country had achieved a 2.7 times growth in women’s account ownership and 41 percent of women owned a bank account. However, vast swaths of women remain unbanked or underserved by financial services, many of them being unemployed or lower-income working in the informal economy.

This case study offers an overview of the current state of women’s financial inclusion in Honduras.
