When we discuss financial inclusion, specifically in regards to women, the conversation often focuses on developing markets and least developed countries. But challenges to financial inclusion exist for women in developed economies as well, including the United States. So, what are the lessons we can take from developed economies that we can apply to the last mile, and vice versa?

In what would be the last episode we recorded before the COVID-19 outbreak, Episode 16 of Capital Musings featured Lauren Silbert, VP and General Manager of the personal finance website, The Balance. Lauren shared her thoughts on the challenges of financial inclusion and financial literacy for women in the U.S. and what lessons we can apply to the LDCs.
