WOMEN SERIES - Advancing Financial Inclusion For Women in Nigeria
There is widespread evidence of the economic and societal benefits of women's financial inclusion.
A research from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) suggests that increasing women's access to and use of financial services can have broader socio-economic impact.
Women's financial inclusion can create greater economic stability and prosperity for women, their families, and their communities, by building assets, enabling the ability to respond to family needs, and mitigating risk.
When a woman has access and, just as importantly, control of formal financial products she not only contributes to her own well-being, but also to the well-being of her family.
This edition of the 'Women Series' discusses the Central Bank of Nigeria's Framework for advancing Women's Financial Inclusion in Nigeria.
