Members Only Webinar - Enabling Entrepreneurship: Digital Financial Services That Are Helping Put Women in Business

Women entrepreneurs disproportionately face challenges in opening, operating and expanding their businesses - from lack of capital to inadequate banking services to insufficient business education and confidence. This webinar, organized jointly by the SME Finance Forum and the Global Banking Alliance for Women (GBA), will explore how digital solutions are enabling financial services providers to help solve some of these problems, growing their customer bases in the process. 

 

IFC will share its experience leveraging digital technology for accelerating financing for women entrepreneurs.

 

Diamond Bank will share its experience and lessons learnt from implementing innovative digital (including mobile) solutions and delivery channels to reach more women SME clients. Diamond Bank, Nigeria's fastest growing retail bank, uses innovation and technology to enhance customer experiences and drive financial inclusion. 

 

Cherie Blair Foundation will showcase its "HerVenture" App, which supports women entrepreneurs to access the skills, confidence and networks they need to grow their businesses. The Cherie Blair Foundation is dedicated to developing women owned SMEs into growing and sustainable businesses.
