The aim of this project is to continue a successful relationship with the GBA, and to focus on African and Asian banks through the hosting of All Stars in Sri Lanka (March 2018) and South Africa (mid-2018). Furthermore, the need for peer mentoring is also high in the market, and hence FMO will support the mentoring program’s further roll-out and development. Finally, a portion of the grant will be allocated to the annual conferences.

The Global Banking Alliance for Women (GBA) is a global consortium of financial institutions dedicated to supporting banks as they capture the opportunity of the Women’s Market. GBA members work in more than 135 countries to build innovative, comprehensive programs that deliver women the tools that they need to succeed, including access to capital, information, education and markets. Indirectly, this project will benefit FMO’s client banks, primarily in Africa and Asia.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF FMO
Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW) . A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order. Additional information about this accountability mechanism, including a guide and template for filing a complaint, can be found at: https://www.fmo.nl/
