Centre for Muslim States and Societies Seminar Series 2019 : Financial inclusion: Women-focused Islamic banking in Kenya Other events...
Development theories see inclusion and access to finance as a critical factor in overcoming persistent income inequality and slower growth in economies. Well-functioning financial systems are not only significant for channelling funds to the most productive uses and help to boost economies, but also for improving opportunities and reducing poverty. As the importance of a healthy financial system continues to be focusedon globally, development practice progressively recognises the ethical and religious suitability of financial systems.

Islamic finance is thus fast becoming a significant commercial sector in many countries including Kenya that seeks to service not only its Muslim population, but also offers ethical banking to non-Muslim clients. With a focus on Islamic finance and banking in Kenya, this presentation examines the prospects for financial inclusion of women through Islamic women-focused banking.

The presentation is based on research done on Islamic banks in Kenya.
