- Target the mass market in Africa and South Asia (including Indonesia)
- Have made gender inclusion a priority, both in their business models and their company culture
- Be able to demonstrate that their products and services address the gender gap in financial inclusion through increased access to financial services for women and or a deeper impact on the daily financial lives of women and their families
