Throughout the world, widespread gender gaps in financial inclusion and economic empowerment negatively affect the lives of women and hinder economic growth. Recognizing an urgent need to close these gaps, USAID INVEST (INVEST) alongside the USAID Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Hub (USAID/GenDev) has built a $23 million portfolio of activities to advance women’s economic empowerment. The following fact sheet takes a look at USAID/GenDev and INVEST's approaches to advancing women's economic empowerment, as well as their partners, activities, and objectives under the portfolio.
