Empower Women in Industries through Fintech Collaboration

To boost women entrepreneurship in India, fintech loans should become more inclusive.

Self-employment or entrepreneurship is the most important source of employment for women in India, with nearly three-quarters of women across the country relying on their own occupations to survive. That said, women-led industries in India are more likely to be informal, employing some workers, and concentrated in traditional low-growth, low-productivity sectors. These industries are far from technology-driven, male-led start-ups that seek to become unicorns and attract the interest of global investors.
