Globally, 2 billion people remain unbanked and women lag behind men in terms of access to formal accounts, credit and savings products. FinEquity, a global community to advance women's financial inclusion, is convened by CGAP. It provides facilitated platforms to share experiences, identify key challenges, document and discuss emerging good practices, and solve common problems associated with increasing equitable access to and use of a broad range of financial services.

The survey is advertised via the FinEquity Newsletter, social media channels, and DGroups, as well as individualized outreach to members who have close contact with facilitators and Working Group leads.
