November 29, 2022

The Women Banking Champions program, launched in 2018 by IFC in partnership with the Swiss Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), aims to improve access to finance and boost financial inclusion for women entrepreneurs. The program employs a three-pronged approach for accomplishing that goal. It provides data and market insights while expanding access to knowledge and networks. It supports legislative reforms, working with financial regulators, such as central banks. And it works directly with partner banks to create new products for female customers.
