Financially empowering women increases development opportunities for the nation, according to a report by Visa

Women are essential and very important in creating social and economic impact. Not only do women aid in the prosperity of future generations by investing as much as 90% of their income in their family and their children’s success, they also contribute significantly to growth and jobs.

However, while financially empowered women improve development outcomes, they have less access to financial services, and are facing a 9% global gender gap in financial inclusion. The situation is even more challenging among female small business owners in developing countries, where 70% of them are underserved by financial services.
