Preeti Sinha, Executive Secretary at United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), talks about their newest innovative programs, like the UNCDF 500. This initiative will support 500 companies in the LDCs (Least Developed Countries), focusing on women’s economic development, climate change, and biodiversity. And their newly launched partnership with 100 Women in Finance, which has 20,000 members worldwide, will support women leaders in African economies as well as mentor young women to become future leaders.
These and other UNCDF initiatives in collaboration with official lenders make long term sustainable finance available to developing countries by extending maturities on lending programs.
