Hadiatou Diallo Barry fell into banking almost by chance. She worked hard and climbed the professional ladder all the way to the top of several prominent companies and organizations. One could say her success is all the more remarkable because she was subjected to the headwinds of gender bias that are still, unfortunately, strong. Then, she used her experience and skills to set up Akiba Finance, a bank that caters primarily to low-income women.
