Panel Discussion: 3 to 4 pm ET
(Ministerios Cash Luna)
Improving Women's Access to Finance for a Post-COVID Recovery
Colombia's vice president joins a panel of top financial executives to discuss how to address challenges like financial exclusion and gender bias in a post-COVID world.
Improving access to finance for women entrepreneurs would provide a massive boost to Latin America’s post-COVID recovery – and help address inequality and poverty as well. At present, nearly half of Latin American women lack a bank account, let alone access to credit for their small businesses. How can governments and banks best address barriers ranging from limited information about financial instruments to outright gender bias? What are good examples and cases of success in the region?
