IMPACT ON CLIMATE
We like to share examples on how financial inclusion can advance climate-smart solutions and drive inclusive progress. A series of impactful projects of all shapes and sizes in emerging countries that address climate change, and help people adapt to and be more resilient to climate hazards. We at Incofin hope these stories of entrepreneurs, of financial institutions, of cooperatives, of impact organisations around the world can inspire how impact investors can contribute to a sustainable transition to a climate resilient economy.
Climate change is now. We must ensure that the most susceptible to the impacts of climate change – who are often already among the most vulnerable – are not left behind. Climate change is as much an environmental challenge as it is one of livelihood and social justice. Low-income communities (not the least women in those communities) are on the frontline of the dire effects of climate change. With the proper financial and technical solutions they are able to adapt, build resilience and mitigate climate change. Financial inclusion is well positioned to play a key role in empowering low-income vulnerable populations to adapt to climate change.
It brings us this time to Banco Pichincha in Ecuador, and especially to Maria. Enjoy her story.
