Thank you Asli for this interesting post on the gender gap in financial inclusion. The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) supports projects that promote financial inclusion for men and women, and understands that technology can be a critical component of this support, especially in the developing world. One project OPIC supports is the Access Africa Fund, an investor in local microfinance institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa. Access Africa Fund such as Musoni Kenya, the first MFI in Africa to go 100 percent mobile to increase financial inclusion for those who do not have easy access to traditional banks. http://www.opic.gov/blog/opic-in-action/expanding-access-to-banking-and-credit-in-sub-saharan-africa
