Women and digital financial services

 

Join us in celebrating International Women’s Day 2018!

Through our #PressforProgress campaign, we are proud to share information about our partnerships that are supporting women’s economic empowerment in a variety of ways.

 

 

 

The Digital Frontiers Institute is a one-of-a-kind institution that is building human capacity in digital financial services by equipping a new generation of fintech professionals with the information, skills and vision they need to deliver and guide society towards inclusive digital financial solutions. DFI recognises the under-representation of women in leadership roles in digital financial services and fintech as well as the general lack of financial inclusion for women across the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Through support from FSD Africa and other partners, DFI is addressing these issues by equipping women with the necessary qualifications and training to develop digital financial services and products that sustainably include them and that, in turn, allow women actively participate in the economy.
