Digital Sub-Wallets and Household Dialogues Final Report

October 13, 2021

Improving women’s equitable influence over household financial decisions increases their capacity and likelihood to save, reduces their risk of loss of income, and improves their financial stability and resilience to shocks. In particular, addressing restrictive social norms through household dialogues provide a safe space for women to equitably participate in household planning and decision-making. Women have specific challenges in financial access, financial and digital illiteracy, and lack of control over household finances. Technology access, product design and training are critical to meeting women’s needs and priorities and to facilitate their uptake of digital financial services. This final report from the Digital Sub-Wallets (DSW) teams shows how digital sub-wallets and household dialogues can be applied to combat these issues.
