Financial Inclusion for Empowering Women – Way Ahead

  • 155 Accesses

Part of the Circular Economy and Sustainability book series (CES)


A country can develop economically and socially if its weakest section can turn out to be financially autonomous. Sustainable development can be achieved when resources are equally available and accessible for all, irrespective of gender differences. Despite several socio-economic developments worldwide, women still fall among some of the most vulnerable communities, unable to access resources at par with men. Thus, women’s empowerment emerges as a theme central to sustainable development. This paper studies the gender gap in various fields and how empowering women would ensure inclusive development in different sectors. Sustainable growth, economic development, and the progress of an economy can only be achieved if a country has a robust financial system. All the resources from top to bottom must be appropriately channelized to attain inclusive growth in an economic system.
