Designing products and developing institutions to serve low-income women

Through our support, over the last five years, Women’s World Banking partnered with three large African banks — in Nigeria (Diamond Bank), Tanzania (NMB) and Malawi (NBS Bank) — on an array of projects to reach low-income women and girls with credit and savings projects, accompanied by financial education.

Major takeaways from this publication include: How to develop a successful digital savings product for women, how to create sustainable financial products for youth and their families, must haves for credit programs focused on women-owned businesses, and best practices for creating leadership programs to drive change.
