Discrimination against women in bank lending is a continually evolving topic in today' s society and maintains itself as a source of controversy and debate.

Despite countless studies and declarations of statistics in their support, women continue to face difficult challenges when acquiring the necessary capital to transform their visions into concrete and profitable pursuits.
