Basis, Fisdom, LXME, Lazypay, Fintech News, Kite, Zerodha, Fintech India, India News, Fintech Solutions, In the contemporary digital realm, women are increasingly assuming control over their personal as well as their families’ financial security, transcending conventional boundaries set by society and ascribed gender roles, and embracing financial empowerment to a heightened degree.

According to the World Bank, the Labour Force Participation Rate (LFPR) in India was 24% for females and 73.6% for males in 2022. However, recently, the LFPR among females was 32.7% and among males was 76.8% for 2023. The labour force participation rate is the proportion of the population ages 15 and older that is economically active. Since 1990, female labour force participation has been positively incremental on a rapid scale.

The statistics measured above are not only a testament to women gripping employment opportunities but also to them being wage earners and equal income contributors in their respective households, having the purchasing power and the freedom to manage their income and generate promising investments.  With all these revolutionary trends, women’s wealth generation patterns and expense management habits are a subject of research and study.

The emergence of FinTech has played a pivotal role in creating a transition within the digital financial services sector, affording women seamless access to a diverse array of tools for proficient financial management, investment strategies, and meaningful engagement in a spectrum of financial endeavours.
