Did you know that 980 million women, more than the total population of Europe, have no access to a bank or other financial services? This means that around 56% of adults worldwide cannot save money, get a loan or plan for their financial future.
As the EU bank, it is our duty to ensure that the projects we finance protect all corners of society.
Women, men, girls and boys must be given equal opportunities.
To ensure that our activities help women and girls, the EIB Group created a gender strategy to empower women economically and an action plan to make sure we meet our promises.
