By Wayan Vota on November 2, 2020

women's digital financial inclusion

Internet access and information and communication technologies create new opportunities for digital financial services that increase financial inclusion. Yet 1.7 billion adults are still unbanked, with women constituting 56% of the unbanked due to three key barriers to digital financial access:

  • Laws and regulations,
  • Limited digital financial infrastructure,
  • Lack of access to IDs and technology needed to obtain an account.

Research suggests that financial inclusion can be transformative for women and their families, but this growing body of work still leaves the causal mechanisms between digital financial services and women’s economic empowerment understudied.
