Please indicate any innovations in your microfinance program planned for the coming year:
Women’s World Banking will continue to expand its influence, producing more services and tools to bolster women’s financial empowerment in underserved and often overlooked areas. The NGO will be piloting and scaling up programs in Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia, amongst our other current priority markets. Since greater gender financial inclusion requires proactive and skilled management, it will also be expanding its leadership and development programs, helping women reach higher levels of influence at both the household and organizational levels. Last but not least, Women’s World Banking is pioneering innovative solutions to the barriers of financial exclusion, taking full advantage and harnessing the power of global technological gains.
