Microenterprises and Gender
This paper looks at the position of women in microenterprises, at what makes it difficult for them to achieve their goals, and what would mitigate those difficulties.The paper examines the after-effects of apartheid on women in microenterprises, specific gender constraints, and proposed economic policies in South Africa and their implications for women. Among the conclusions and recommendations are that assistance should be targeted at groups rather than individuals, that necessary legal assistance should be provided, and that financial services should take into account the need for daily cash.
