The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Enhancing Financial Innovation and Access (EFInA), an organisation that promotes financial inclusion among the poor, are partnering on a project aimed at establishing the factors responsible for women being the most financially excluded in the country, the executive officer of the organisation has said.

EFInA is conducting a survey, on CBN‘s request, that would enable them know the reasons for women exclusion from the financial services, according to Esaie Diei, the Chief Executive Officer of EFInA.

“We started the survey to know why women are most financially excluded two months ago and it should be out by the end of June, we want to move fast and be able to give CBN some credible information so that they can come out with policy recommendation,” Diei told BusinessDay in Lagos on the side lines of the organisation’s financial empowerment event on Thursday.
