In November 2022, the Gender Centre of Excellence (GCE) in close collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Financial Inclusion Delivery Unit (CBN, FIDU), commissioned a situational analysis study, to provide an in-depth overview of the state of Women’s Financial Inclusion (WFI) in Nigeria and the progress made in implementing the Framework for Advancing Women’s Financial Inclusion (FAWFIN) mid-line to the targets set for 2024.
The study’s findings and recommendations provide a baseline view of the progress made and identify key actions needed to bridge the gender gap and improve women’s access to and use of financial services. The study also includes a comprehensive stakeholder analysis to identify and map all ecosystem actors implementing WFI interventions in Nigeria and document relevant global, regional, and national benchmark case studies that can be adopted to accelerate women’s financial inclusion in Nigeria.
The GCE and CBN, FIDU are organizing an official virtual launch event of the situational analysis study and mid-line evaluation of the Framework for Advancing Women’s Financial Inclusion in Nigeria under the theme ‘Taking Stock and Accelerating Progress for Impact’.
