March 20, 2014

Dexex Impact interviewed Women’s World Banking’s President and CEO Mary Ellen Iskenderian as part of the #SheBuilds campaign. In this interview, she talks about why financial inclusion is so important to women.

Access to financial services has tremendous potential to improve prosperity and security — especially for women — if done correctly.

The rapid growth of mobile technology has removed some of the barriers to finance and resulted in getting more traditional financial actors involved — or at least considering products — for those in hard to reach communities, according to Mary Ellen Iskenderian, president and CEO of Women’s World Banking.
