Women and Enterprises Driving Financial Inclusion and Investment Returns


The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the National Bank of Cambodia in cooperation with the Australian Government are organising an upcoming stakeholders’ conference on, "Women and Enterprises Driving Financial Inclusion and Investment Returns”.

Purpose of the Conference

To develop a framework for action to incentivise greater private and quasi-private sector investment and financing for MSMEs, contributing in particular to women’s economic empowerment in frontier markets in the ASEAN region.

The event is being held under the auspices of the Shaping Inclusive Finance Transformation (SHIFT) program, which is a grant and advocacy facility seeking to transition 6 million people into regulated financial market by 2020 through expanding markets for consumer finance to low-income people and business finance to micro-small-medium enterprises (MSMEs). SHIFT is currently in design/inception phase and looking for innovative partnerships with social venture funds, NGOs and financial institutions. We hope this conference will help us expand our networks.

This two-day conference is being held on 29th -30th April 2015 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
