For centuries, sages, poets, and scientists have punched the clock and collected paychecks for puzzling over “what women want.” Forbes journalist Lisa Quast is now posting her answer to that question, at least in terms of microfinance.
Quast interviews Women’s World Banking President and CEO Mary Ellen Iskenderian in a three-part series. In the second post, “What Women Want from Microfinance,” Iskenderian zeroes in on savings as a must-have product. Iskenderian also identifies financial education as a key to making savings accessible to women.
There’s a lot more to it, of course. Quast’s three-part series – well worth a read – starts here.
