I visited a women-run micro-finance bank in Bouaké and Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire that mostly caters to women clientele, though all are welcome.  They aim to make loans more accessible to low-income women, and also have a higher than average repayment rate.

In addition, I interviewed several women clients of the bank who had taken loans from the bank to expand their businesses.
