RISC Industry Colloquium – Data analytics as a catalyzer of financial inclusion for women

By Katherine Báez, Expert in financial inclusion, International Finance Corporation.

Gender equality is a prerequisite for sustainable and inclusive economic growth and for human development, and there is no gender equality without financial inclusion. I will explore the "WHYs" for doing finance with a gender lens and explore opportunities for boosting financial inclusion for women, leveraging on data analytics. For this, I will be considering the access to the full range of financial services, including insurance, which is often left out when talking about financial inclusion.
