Empowering Women through Microfinance

Empowering Women through Microfinance

Summary

There are arguments that microfinance reinforces gender inequalities rather than facilitating empowerment. This paper uses a case study of Sinapi Abha Trust, Ghana to explore dimensions of microfinance's empowerment effect, including its impact on women's businesses, impact on households and family relations, impact on the community and women's role and status in it, and impact on women's general education and literacy. The paper concludes by identifying areas of action and research for microfinance practitioners and donors.
