As a strategic research partner to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF)’s Financial Services for the Poor portfolio, the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) has undertaken a systematic review to explore recent research on gender and financial inclusion and gender and digital financial inclusion to inform the broader donor and practitioner field about gaps in and opportunities for investments in both research and interventions. Specifically, the following were the key objectives of the review: (1) To understand where and how gender influences financial inclusion and digital financial inclusion; (2) To represent the strength of the evidence base to show what the field knows and where there are gaps. (3) To highlight potential questions and knowledge gaps to inform a learning agenda for the wider field and future investments.
