[podcast] Expanding Financial Access for Rural Women in Egypt


“It’s not that the barriers are necessarily different for the rural women and the urban women. But the same barriers are greater for rural women.” 

In this podcast, Veronica Karpoich, Project Manager at Women’s World Banking discusses Women’s World Banking’s progress in closing the gap of financial access for one of the most challenging segments to reach, rural women.

For the past year, Karpoich has been working with Women’s World Banking network member Lead Foundation to leverage the success of its individual lending program to introduce another methodology, one that is tailored to rural business activities performed mostly by women.
