Dissemination of the Gendered Social Norms Diagnostic and their Impact on Women’s Financial Inclusion in Rwanda

May 3, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

To understand how gendered social norms are affecting women’s financial inclusion in Rwanda, Access to Finance Rwanda (AFR) commissioned a diagnostic study to determine how particular social norms influence women entrepreneurs’ financial inclusion or exclusion. This study provides country-level insights into social norms that impact women entrepreneurs’ access to, use of, and benefits from financial services.

In a bid to share the report findings with key stakeholders in the financial and women empowerment sectors, AFR will host a dissemination event as part of the LEAD (Lead, Engage, Act, Develop) Series events. Under the theme “Breaking Gender Social Norms Restricting Women’s Financial Inclusion in Rwanda”, the event will take place on Wednesday 3rd May 2023 from 4.00 PM – 6.30 PM (East Africa Time), 3:00 – 5:30 PM (Kigali Time).  

The event will convene leaders from Government Institutions, Financial Services Providers (FSPs), Fintechs, Civil Society Organisations, Development Partners, the Private Sector, and Mobile Network Operators to reflect on possible solutions to break the social norms which greatly affect women’s economic development.
