GABV LAC gender journey’s: Insights in How are we serving the women’s market?
FMO – GABV Study
The Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) is a network of banking leaders from around the world committed to advancing positive change in the banking sector. Our collective goal is to change the banking system so that it is more transparent, supports economic, social and environmental sustainability, and is composed of a diverse range of banking institutions serving the real economy.
Founded in 2009, we are a growing network, with banks, banking cooperatives and credit unions, microfinance institutions and community development banks joining us from many parts of the world.
Our members have one thing in common: a shared mission to use finance to deliver sustainable economic, social and environmental development, with a focus on helping individuals fulfil their potential and build stronger communities. Our primary focus is achieving structural change within the financial system. Therefore, we partner with innovative businesses, citizens and their organizations. We share a dream with them of sustainable economies and inclusive societies.
GABV aims to strengthen its capacity to promote gender equality, women’s empowerment and diversity, in line with the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. In doing so, GABV is seeking to conduct a gender finance assessment study which will allow us to have a better understanding of our members practices in serving the women’s market and mainstreaming gender into their internal operations.
The study will cover all member banks of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values in Latin America and the Caribbean, namely: Visión Banco, Banco Fie, Banco Solidario, Caja Arequipa, Banco Mundo Mujer, Banco Solidario, Banco Ademi, Banfondesa, Integral SAC, Banco Popular de Honduras, Bancompartir and Cooperativa Abaco. We wish to know ‘where we are’ in terms of serving the women’s market and understand our common gender gaps, challenges, trends, good practices and opportunities in terms of our members’ strategies, systems, outreach, value propositions and data systems. The expected outcome is a set of key recommendations and an action-plan for the GABV on how to best support its members with developing strategies and actions on becoming more gender smart in the future. What role can the GABV play in supporting its LAC members with building the right systems, capacities and funds to serve the women’s market in a sustainable, effective and efficient way?
At the end of this assignment, GABV should have a project team with a clear action-plan in place to commence the rest of the gender journey. The objective of this assignment is two-fold:
- To diagnose the ability / challenges and good practices of the members to identify and serve the women’s market.
- To translate the outcomes of the study into key recommendations and an action-plan for the GABV to advance in its gender journey.
- Scope of Work
In order to identify the best way forward, the GABV would like to understand better where its member stand in terms of serving the women’s market across three dimensions:
- What is the current state of women’s financial inclusion and the women’s market in the LAC region? We would like to understand better what is the size and scope of the women’s market and what are the key constraints experienced by women in the region to access finance (i.e. constraints, opportunities, access to micro-credits and savings groups, access to business development services, enterprise development, financial education, training). Moreover, we also like to get a better understanding of who are the key actors in this field, and what ‘others’ are doing to overcome those constraints as well as the relevance and adequacy of the existing financial and non-financial services.
- What practices & challenges do our individual members demonstrate and experience in terms of women’s market strategy, performance, organization, Human Resources, market knowledge, products and service customization, data and customer management, sales and marketing and offering of non-financial services?
We seek answers to the following research questions (the suggested respondents for this are the CEOs,
Heads of Marketing, Heads of (M)SME/Business Banking, Heads of Credit, Heads of Product Development)
- Have they made a women’s market analysis? How, and what was the outcome? Which segment(s) of the women’s market are our members serving? What strategic goals are in place? What are the top 3 challenges for the FI to serve this market? What have they done so far? What are they most proud off? What is working, what not?
- What do they offer to female clients? Is that different than for male clients? How is the uptake? Do they partner/collaborate with women business groups, women networks, women social networks in service delivery? Why yes/not?
- Type of financial products? Do men need to co-sign? What are the collateral requirements? Can women meet these requirements?
- Non-financial services? What is your model, do you partner with others in the delivery of non-financial services?
- What was done in terms of training for staff on this topic? What type of capacity? How would they describe the commitment of the staff (Loan Officers) to work with women / female entrepreneurs? Are there targets for LOs on # WSMEs / female customers? Which competences are readily in place and which areas need further development?
- Are members collecting sex-disaggregated data? Check for:
# total number of business loans for women compared to men
# average loan size of women compared to men
# NPLS men & women MSMEs
# contribution of loan to women & men to revenue
#customer satisfaction men & women
- What capacities and actions can be developed and what can the role be of the GABV and others (like the Financial Alliance for Women)? We would like to understand better and learn from our members what type of support they need and what would be the best entry-point for the GABV to support its members in the future. For example, should the GABV develop a GABV gender policy (and then which elements) and/or develop a joint set of gender indicators? Is there a need to support our members with knowledge and capacity on ‘how to’ develop strategies and product and service development for the women’s market? What role can the GABV play in building collective capacity on collecting and using sex-disaggregated data for market insights, business cases and tracking performance? How can the GABV partner with other key actors in this space?
- Approach & method
To generate the answers to the above questions, first a quick desk-research will be conducted to consolidate existing literatures and reports on the women’s market in the region. Review available background data, including sex-disaggregated demographic information and social and economic indicators of the project diverse contexts, and gender issues related to targeted sectors and access to financial products and services in the target contexts (where available).
Secondly, all members will be interviewed (1,5 hours via Skype) and a desk review done of all relevant project documents. GABV will assist with setting up the interviews and identifying the right persons.
Third, a mapping of key actors in the region will be made and 3 gender experts in the region interviewed. FMO and GABV will assist with suggesting and introducing to experts and representatives.
Fourth, the draft recommendations and action-plan will be presented and discussed to FMO and GABV to arrive final conclusions (to be presented at the Feleban/GABV in Quito). This can be done via Skype.
