Access to capital for women entrepreneurs in Rwanda
Rwanda has put in place mechanisms to promote financial inclusion.
The Rwandan Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning is now working with different Financial institutions in the efforts to promote financial inclusion.
The country has also initiated the Business Development Fund (BDF) which is providing guarantees and grants to accompany the ongoing financial inclusion initiatives with a deliberate effort targeting marginalised women and young girls.
In the same line, the Ministry of gender and family promotion (MIGEPROF ) and Ministry of ICT and innovation (MINICT) are initiating a Women and youth Investment Facility (WYIF) for new startups mostly emerging women and youth entrepreneurs.
