The G20 High-Level Policy Guidelines on Digital Financial Inclusion for Youth, Women, and SMEs document was produced by the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) in 2020 under the Saudi Arabia G20 Presidency with the support of OECD, the World Bank Group in partnership with The Better Than Cash Alliance, the Women's World Banking and the SME Finance Forum.
The G20 High-Level Policy Guidelines on Digital Financial Inclusion for Youth, Women and SMEs (HLPGs) provides sets of featured policy options targeting financial inclusion gaps for youth (subject to child protection frameworks where relevant), women and SMEs through digital financial services in order to reach conditions in which all people can live, work and thrive; as well as utilize and share benefits of innovations and digitalization. The G20 High-Level Policy Guidelines are supported by three reports: (1) Advancing the Digital Financial Inclusion of Youth; (2) Advancing Women’s Digital Financial Inclusion; and (3) Promoting Digital and Innovative SME Financing. The supporting reports emphasize the importance of fostering responsible finance through increased access to digitally enabled financial services as well as addressing relevant cross-cutting issues, including financial consumer protection and financial literacy.
The fourth part of the publication, G20 Policy Options for Promoting Digital and Innovative SME Financing, was authored by a team led by Ghada Teima, which comprised of Miguel Soriano, Luis Maldonado, Volha Monfiston, and in parnership with Matthew Gamser, CEO of the SME Finance Forum.
