In this session we look at the most critical challenges and how they can be addressed, how FSPs can leverage their own power and network to support WSMEs overcome market challenges and scale their business and what it takes to create an enabling environment for WSMEs to scale.
Whether loans to purchase whole homes, or for home improvements, the housing finance market, as currently configured does not serve the majority of women in emerging markets. Yet across the globe, women will say that owning a house is their first priority in life after educating their children and taking care of the family’s health. This session focuses on identifying the opportunities for FSPs to tailor housing finance by addressing women’s challenges in access and also address women’s strategic gender interests.
