On 8th March, FINCA Zambia joined the rest of the globe in celebrating International Women’s Day by taking part in the national event in the capital Lusaka. This was in addition to the fantastic efforts that the branches adopted to drive their pledges which included helping clean clinics, visiting women empowerment groups among other things. An exhibition was held at the Lusaka showgrounds where various organizations showcased their products and services. The Theme for the event was: ‘Planet 50/50 by 2030- Step it up for gender equality’.

This was a great platform to share testimonials of the work FINCA Zambia has done in empowering women from diverse backgrounds and helping them fulfil their ambitions and dreams. In addition, it was a fantastic stage to educate women on financial literacy. Accounts were opened onsite and our first and only female agent (for now) was on site to offer FINCA Express services (withdraws, deposits, transfers, statements).

The team were joined by Doug and Bram, FINCA Zambia CEO and CCO respectively who showed their support not only by supporting the team but took it up a notch by signing up for the HeforShe campaign; a solidarity campaign that engages men and boys as agents for change.

Building Tomorrow Together!
