Title: Enhancing female financial inclusion in Tajikistan on World Savings Day.
As part of the MPTF project Empowerment of Families Left Behind, IOM has been conducting two-day trainings on financial literacy with women in Khatlon, Tajikistan, whose husbands have migrated abroad to seek employment, some of which never return. These women whose husbands have abandoned them are considered a vulnerable and marginalised group with poor economic resilience and inclusion, and often struggle to access rights and protections.
Migrant workers don’t always return home with pockets full of money and sweets for the family. Sometimes, what is brought home is depression, a disability, even a dead body.
