Promoting Greater Financial Inclusion of Women in Rwanda
This resource appears in:
The financial inclusion of the poor, especially women, is a key issue in the fight against poverty. But the poorest have so little that often deduce that their economic existence is irrelevant. Unfortunately, this misunderstanding undermines the fight against poverty. So, today nearly 60% of the Rwandan population, including many women, is excluded from formal financial services.
To address this challenges, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry of Rwanda (MINICOM), IFAD and PROCASUR have joined forces to develop a Learning Route in Kenya in 2011. Thanks to this route, officials Rwandan COOPECs (savings and credit cooperative) who participated became aware of the economic interest that represent the poor, especially women. They have managed to implement a number of strategies to strengthen their financial inclusion.
