Economic Empowerment for Plantation Women in Sri Lanka

Women and youth represent the majority of the 2.5 billion people who are financially excluded.  They are unable to have access to open bank accounts or apply for credit, loans or other financial services.

For tea pluckers and women living in and around the plantations, social and cultural isolation combined with structural barriers put them at greater risk of being left behind. 

Even with recent wage increases, women and youth still have no means to access savings, monthly budgeting or long term planning to achieve their families’ financial goals.
