Women’s Finance Hub To Advance Access to Finance for Women-Owned Businesses

The Women’s Finance Hub, an initiative of the G20 and Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) to improve access to financial services for women entrepreneurs and promote the sharing of knowledge and best practices, launched an online platform during a ceremony on April 21, 2013, at the Spring Meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. 

The hub is an online platform to help advance access to finance for women-owned businesses by disseminating research and information on critical issues related to the women’s market. It will also address gaps in data, promote collaboration in knowledge sharing, and highlight innovation and best practices in expanding women’s access to finance. 
 
The new Women’s Finance Hub is accessible at: www.womensfinancehub.org
 
The creation of the Women’s Finance Hub was made possible with key support from several members of the G20 advanced and developing economies—including the United States, South Korea, Turkey, Germany, and the United Kingdom—that have also consistently championed women’s access to finance issues in the G20 financial inclusion agenda. The Women’s Finance Hub will be managed by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a GPFI Implementing Partner.
