How FinTech Plays an Equalizing Role in the Global Gender Gap

  • FINCA 1201 15th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

6 March 2017, 17:30 - 20:00 At FINCA In Washington DC

Financial technology (“FinTech”) is revolutionizing the way low-income people in developing countries access financial resources and transact with each other and the world: from enabling mobile payments that reduce expensive trips to a bank branch, to digital savings accounts, to accessing credit, to paying for solar power in affordable daily installments. Women in particular, long disproportionately held back by poverty, have much to gain. Technology has the potential to unlock markets and enable previously “unbanked” groups to access services at an unprecedented scale and velocity.

FINCA is a microfinance and social enterprise pioneer and innovator. We develop and provide sustainable, market-based solutions to enable full participation in the economy for all people and all communities. We are convening our second annual International Women’s Day roundtable discussion to shine a spotlight on what Fintech in emerging markets can mean for women, both as a catalyst for economic inclusion and for gender equality.

Panel discussion moderated by Andrée Simon, CEO of FINCA Microfinance Holding Company, followed by networking session.
