New: Our Gender-Inclusive Fintech Ecosystem Map!

Explore our Gender-Inclusive Fintech Ecosystem Map, a curated showcase of organizations at the intersection of financial inclusion, gender, and fintech, emphasizing migration. Compiled from public data, it’s a diverse, non-exhaustive list reflecting the vibrant landscape in these sectors. Please note that inclusion in this map is not an endorsement, and that each organization is grouped by core activity. Spotlights highlight unique efforts for gender equity – it’s about recognition, not judgment.
