The Need for Gender-Disaggregated Data in the Financial Sector

While women-owned MSMEs represent about one-third of all businesses in emerging markets, they continue to face barriers when it comes to accessing capital and other financial services. The growth of Fintechs in developing countries offers a potential solution, but these firms need gender-disaggregated data to effectively tailor products and services that address the needs of all customers. Gender-disaggregated data can be a powerful tool for advancing women’s financial inclusion, providing insights that drive better outcomes for financial institutions while reaching underserved segments of the population.

Join us for a discussion on the crucial role and benefits of gender-disaggregated data in advancing gender equality, exploring recent findings from IFC’s new report, Her Fintech Edge as well as CGAP’s work on Supply-Side Gender-Disaggregated Data in the Financial Sector.
