Labour Pains: Discovering the Financial Lives of Zambian Mothers

Topic :

‘Labour Pains: Discovering the Financial Lives of Zambian Mothers’ summarizes research conducted by the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF). Based on the hypothesis that Zambian mothers constitute a unique user group similar to farmers, refugees or small-business owners and the reality that one in three Zambian women are mothers, UNCDF sought to learn more about this segment across income levels, age groups and geographies and deepen its knowledge of and enhance the data on Zambian mothers’ financial behaviours. Consistent with the mandate of UNCDF to improve access to financial services for low-income populations in its focal countries, the report and executive summary pay particular attention to low-income mothers. By better understanding their specific financial and non-financial needs and challenges, providers can develop and refine DFS to better meet their unique requirements.
