From Access to Empowerment: Gender Issues in Microfinance

Summary

This paper notes donor assumptions underpinning microfinance's mission identity (that it will lead to women's economic empowerment and increased family well-being) and contrasts those assumptions with some research findings (that women did benefit but not to the extent assumed, that negative impacts, many due to donor-mandated financial sustainability, were also experienced).
