    By James Forese, President of Citigroup and CEO of the Institutional Clients Group March 13, 2019 09:45 AM

  • Citi Jordan and Inclusive Finance: Advancing Financial Access for 10,000 Women

    By Nour Jarrar, CCO Citi Jordan and Kyla Gineitis, Vice President, Citi Inclusive Finance January 24, 2019 04:30 PM

With just over one in ten women in Jordan participating in the formal economy, however, much more needs to be done to ensure that more women gain access to financial services.
