    Impact-Linked Fund for Gender Inclusive Fintech

    The Impact-Linked Finance Fund, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) proudly present the launch of the Impact-Linked Fund for Gender Inclusive Fintech (ILF for GIF). The ILF for GIF is a highly innovative fund that strives to trigger gender-transformative impact in the financial inclusion sector.

    By providing catalytic capital and using Impact-Linked Finance instruments, the Fund incentivizes fintechs to achieve deeper gender impact and substantially improves their ability to scale. Eligible fintechs from Sub-Saharan Africa, MENA, or Asia have to meet at least one of the 2X Challenge Criteria. A special focus of the ILF for GIF are fintechs serving vulnerable women, such as migrants.

    Meet Jessica Espinoza from 2X Collaborative, Sana Kapadia from GenderSmart, and other partners and experts for a highly inspiring discussion about how innovative finance can push the boundaries in gender inclusion and migration.

    The Impact-Linked Finance Fund is a joint initiative by Roots of Impact and iGravity.
