Financial Products and Services for Women’s Financial Inclusion: A Policy and Regulation Design Toolkit
Most financial policies and products and services are gender-neutral, or even gender-blind. Consequently, they disregard sociocultural norms restricting women’s mobility, ownership, agency, and usage of financial products and services.
The availability and usage of gender-sensitive financial products and services are crucial to bringing women, their families, and ultimately, their communities out of poverty.
This toolkit provides practical guidance to policymakers and regulators in formulating, designing, and implementing gender-transformative policies.
