This paper is one in a series of financial inclusion knowledge products written by UNCDF, and it sits within the scope of UNCDF MicroLead Expansion programme in Myanmar. This paper showcases how leading FSPs in Myanmar are currently contributing to Women economic empowerment by examining their product offerings and customer-centric initiatives; particularly, focuses on private commercial banks. The finding indicates that the commercial private banks in Myanmar do show some commitment to WEE, with KBZ representing best practices in the sector. To maximize business growth, FSPs need to grasp the investment/return ratio achievable from making WEE an integral component of their business plan. As best practices for WEE are flourishing all over the world, the central bank and FSPs in Myanmar are in a unique position to learn from and be inspired by these best practices.
