Our Impact

20 Million Women and Counting

To date, we have reached 20 million women in emerging markets through our programs, helping to change not only their lives but the lives of their households, communities, and businesses.

What do we mean by reached?

Women’s World Banking uses the term “reached” to describe any woman who benefits from our programs to enhance financial inclusion, defined as giving women the choice to access and capability to use financial services. This includes:

  • Women who have access to new or enhanced products or services, delivered directly in partnership with Financial Service Providers.
  • Women projected to benefit from services or policies that deepen their financial inclusion, through investment and advocacy with Financial Service Providers and policymakers.
