The world’s largest emerging market isn’t a country or region; it’s the world’s women.

DFC’s 2X Women’s Initiative is committed to addressing the unique challenges women face globally and unlocking the multitrillion dollar opportunity they represent. Through 2X, DFC has catalyzed more than $2 billion of investment in projects that are owned by women, led by women, or provide a product or service that empowers women. DFC also applies a gender lens to every project it considers to help ensure that women will benefit.
