Rural Outreach & Innovation Action Group Talk
Date: November 9, 2017
Presented by: Zainab Saeed, Kashf Foundation

Rural microfinance in Pakistan has been increasing in terms of numbers but the proportion of loans being given for women centric businesses are abysmally low. Kashf Foundation which is a pioneer in women centric urban microfinance has undertaken a detailed scoping of women led sectors in the rural economy along with MEDA to create a suite of products and services which can work for rural women in Pakistan. The speaker will present facets of women centric product development and preliminary outcomes and challenges from the pilot.
