    The Partnership note aims at providing readers with an overview of the work carried out by the Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) – one of the largest organizations of informal workers in the world– in bolstering financial inclusion for poor women, both in India (where SEWA is based) and abroad. The four-decade experience that SEWA can boast in providing financial services to poor women around the world - together with the unique financial innovations that the organization has developed through trial-and-error for its members - make SEWA an extremely interesting case study within the domain of development finance.

    Women and children are often not only responsible for cooking but also tasked with collecting the fuel needed to prepare meals. This often involves walking long distances to collect fuelwood which exposes them to protection risks and a significant work burden, especially in protracted crises. As a result, less time is left for child care and productive activities that can provide additional income for the household. Improving access to sustainable energy is key to tackle these issues. At the same time, it is of crucial importance to include in-depth gender analyses when planning and implementing SAFE-related projects.
