Gender Disaggregated Data & Women’s Financial Inclusion Study
BFA worked with the regulators, supervisors, and policymakers at the Central Bank of Egypt, along with other stakeholders, to develop a framework with indicators and methodologies for collecting, analyzing and using gender-disaggregated data. In addition, the BFA team worked with these stakeholders to understand not only what gender-disaggregated data they would like to have, but also how those data can be visualized to make the decision-making process more efficient. The project established an empirical, nationally representative data set for women’s financial inclusion in Egypt in order to:
- Set a baseline for the women’s financial inclusion
- Inform policy decisions and support ongoing regulatory reform around savings mobilization, agent banking, mobile money and better usage of the national postal network
- Inform initiatives in the area of new product development and innovative delivery channels specifically for women.
