Gender, entrepreneurship and finance

Access to financial services is a key factor for entrepreneurs in expanding their businesses. Given the important role of access to finance, a gender perspective towards the beneficiary of these resources is needed.

Women’s equal access to and control over economic and financial resources is critical for the achievement of gender equality, for their empowerment and for equitable and sustainable economic growth and development. Both economic and financial resources have important implications for women’s economic roles in sustaining household livelihoods, in labour markets and in the wider economy.
