About 26% of these financing lines were made out to female entrepreneurs in the current financial year, more than doubling the 13% share seen in 2021, in recognition of the critical role that gender diversity and financial inclusion for women plays in fostering sustainable economic growth. Small and medium-sized business owners were the main beneficiaries of these financial lines, which were designed to help them run, expand, and start new ventures that would help them compete in the market.
