According to IFC, through this project, they will be partnering with an A+ rated NBFC (non banking financial company), for a gender advisory program. The project aims to support the client to profitably and sustainably serve women-owned businesses by making gender considerations an important part of their investment screening and due diligence process. Further, it will help them develop gender smart interventions and action plans which fit with and support their growth strategies, and as a result improve gender empowerment and equality aspirations.
This project aims to increase lending to women-owned SMEs by expanding the client’s gender portfolio and improve its performance on gender-focused indicators benchmarked to best practices.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
