The discussion sessions were held on the topic like the role of women in financial decision making, the culture of passing on basic financial concepts like saving and expenditure to children, economic contribution by male and female in a family, as well as a dynamic role of women and financial literacy
All the participants discussed on the cases relevant to the scenario of women in Nepal and had a discussion about what we can be done to create a multiplier effect instead of only being concerned on the individual level to actually have a substantial impact in the lives of women of Nepal.
Ayusha Nirola, Communication Manager, Sakchyam AFP said,“How society perceives women and the power dynamics plays a vital role. So, it is important to get men on board to empower women for financial decision making.”
