Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands recently addressed the Power of Partnerships event at the KIT Royal Tropical Institute. “Around 80 percent of formal, women-owned MSMEs [micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises] do not have access to the financing they need. This represents a $1.7 trillion finance gap….But there are significant opportunities that could make a difference.” The full text of the keynote address by Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands is available here: https://goo.gl/S8VktP.
