The experience of hearing the stories and seeing the impact that access to financial services has on the lives of women in countries around the world is deeply moving; often transforming perception and challenging convention. Each trip has its own unique story, as the participants learn about the history and social and economic environment of cultures where women have access to financial products, often for the first time.
