We’re a tight-knit group of designers, strategists, builders, writers, and connectors fueled by curiosity, optimism, and a passion for social change. Our work tackling some of the world’s toughest design challenges takes us all over the world—from communities across Asia and Africa to neighborhoods in our own backyards.
Over the next 2 years, IDEO.org will build a breadth of solutions that enable low income women to access, use & participate in digital financial services (DFS). This project will begin to answer the how of introducing DFS into the lives of women: how to build trust with them; how to get them access to digital financial services; and how accounts and payments can have the positive impact on their lives.
The project consists of (1) a multi-country investigation on the gender-specific barriers, (2) identification of opportunities to improve the effectiveness of government social safetynet program, (3) design, prototype, and pilot a set of solutions that improve marginalized women’s access and engagement with DFS.
