About

Location: Global
Key(s): Economic Empowerment

Women's World Banking believes low-income women deserve the same access to financial resources as men.  Women tend to save money and handle risk more responsibly than men. They reinvest 90% of their income back into their families, spending more on health care, food, and schooling. Yet they remain an under-served market—so Women’s World Banking equips financial institutions to better reach and empower them.

Providing women with the means to create their own economic security has been at the heart of Women’s World Banking’s work since it was established in 1979.

Developments

Women’s World Banking works with 49 institutions in 31 countries to reach more low-income women with financial services.
