Did you know that poor women account for 1.1 billion of the world’s unbanked adults, or most of the financially excluded?
Financial inclusion needs to bridge gender gaps for it to become truly inclusive, and India has a long way to go in this respect.
In order for digital finance to reach rural women sustainably, there is a need to bring together stakeholders from policy, government, businesses, digital financial solution providers, community-based organisations, and funders, to discuss pathways to collaboration for sustained outcomes.
To achieve this, L&T Financial Services and Sattva have taken a bold first step in focusing their efforts on digital financial inclusion of women in rural India through the conception of Finclusion: Empowering Women Through Digital Finance – a participatory dialogue on learnings, gaps and potential to harness digital financial inclusion for rural women in India.
The summit will take place on 1st February, 2019 from 9am to 2pm in New Delhi.
In an effort to establish knowledge sharing and thought leadership in this largely untapped ecosystem, Finclusion will bring together some of the most eminent thought leaders in the space, including Shri Krishnan Dharmarajan of Centre for Digital Financial Inclusion and Renana Jhabvala of SEWA Bharat among others.
With discussions on topics of great contemporary significance like “Partnerships in effective delivery of financial inclusion” among panellists like Prabhat Labh, CEO of Grameen Foundation and P. Satish, Executive Director of Sa-Dhan, the national-level platform hopes to facilitate vibrant discussions between stakeholders across the board, and ultimately, enable sharing of best practices, solutions and partnerships around women empowerment through digital finance.
Finclusion: Empowering Women Through Digital Finance is an event you won’t want to miss, especially if you wish to leave a lasting impact in the digital financial inclusion space.
