UN Women Call for Proposals for Women Grants in Egypt

UN Women announces CFPs for Women’s Financial and Economic Inclusion in Rural Egypt – COVID-19 Response in Minya and Beni-Suef.

UN Women has announced a call for proposals for the Women’s Financial and Economic Inclusion in Rural Egypt: COVID-19 Response in Minya and Beni-Suef.

The overall goal of the program is to utilize the SGs approach to mobilize vulnerable rural women for deeper and wider financial inclusion, a group that continues to be unreached by banks and microfinance institutions alike.

SGs will support poor and vulnerable groups to shift from informal to formal financial systems and empower them through increased access to financial savings and the safe custody of funds, financial literacy awareness and opportunities for access to formal credit.

The mutual support that members will provide to each other will also help them gain the confidence to participate in local markets as well as value chains.

SGs will also provide a space for addressing discriminatory cultural norms and to act as a catalyst for enhanced social capital and women’s leadership in the household and community levels.

Focus Areas



Capacity development for women members of SGs on business development and technical skills to start income-generating projects in areas that are based on the governorates’ competitive advantage and support the women-led clusters/SGs to be integrated into higher value chains.

Programme Outcomes and Outputs

For the purpose of this call for proposal, UN Women seeks collaboration with NGOs partners to deliver on the below indicative activities that include but are not limited to the following:

Overall objective and expected impact:

Outcome: Rural women are socially and economically empowered through their participation in Savings Groups across Egypt to access basic financial services and build their financial and economic capabilities
