No wp-2021-97, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Although Tanzania has made notable progress in enhancing access to financial services, the gender gap in financial inclusion persists. This paper examines gender disparities in financial inclusion in Tanzania using descriptive and regression analyses. While the advent of mobile phone money services has led to increased access to formal financial services, women still lag behind in access to and utilization of formal financial services.
