Limited digital capability—understood as knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to use digital tools effectively, confidently and safely —is a key barrier to women’s adoption of technology, including digital solutions for savings groups. This tool provides practical tips and suggestions for promoting digital capability among women as part of any digitization project. It is intended for savings group-facing staff and volunteers of organizations implementing digital savings groups (DSGs), specifically community digital champions, community-based trainers (facilitators) and supervisors/field agents.

This tool is a part of the Digital Savings Group (DSG) Toolkit: Tools to Support Safe and Gender-responsive Digitization of Savings Groups. It can be used individually or as a complete set, depending upon the needs of the implementer.

The tool is accompanied by an introductory video, which provides guidance on how to use it.
