How do we connect women in the supply chain with greater access to finance?

This workshop will examine the opportunities for corporations to strengthen their supply chains and financial service providers to grow their business by ensuring women in the supply chain have access to finance.


Our Insights

Digitizing value chains has been a focus of many organizations of late, given the disruptive impact digital technology has had on every level and type of industry. The benefits are enormous, from more visibility along the value chain and operational efficiencies for companies to increased access to convenient, time-saving financial services for individuals, not to mention growth in financial inclusion. Focusing on ensuring the value chain works for women makes value chains more inclusive as well, because, in many industries, women are at the bottom of this chain.


Maria Largey, Head of Financial Institutions, CDC Group on last year’s Summit:

“At CDC, we’re always looking for ways we can work with the businesses we invest in to improve financial inclusion. Our time at the summit showed we are not alone – there are many people from like-minded organizations all around the world committed to making a positive impact.”
