To overcome the issues of poverty and inequality and boost the global growth, financial inclusion of women certainly holds a crucial value.

Supporting and engaging women to invest and borrow will develop a better economic picture of a country. Pertaining to this fact, United Nations’ capital investment agency, UNCDF and other partners are holding a forum on digital financial services for women in Uganda.

Maria Kiwanuka, Uganda’s senior presidential finance advisor said  “This is key theme running through these three days and is helping our colleagues that are providers in the room to understand how you access this untapped potential in some markets it is really untapped,”

Efforts made in this direction have not been fruitful as the gender gap still exists in terms of of the quality of access to a bank or mobile money account.
