The BBVA Microfinance Foundation (BBVAMF) takes part in the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62), one of the most relevant global events on women’s empowerment. This year’s edition is focused on the challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and empowerment for rural women and girls.

Laura Fernández Lord, head of Women’s Economic Empowerment at the Foundation, is one of the participants in the official program.
