Microfinance and Enterprisees Performance in Tanzania: Does Gender Matter?

Summary

This paper examines whether there is a difference in performance among the female-owned vs male-owned enterprises. The analysis centers on clients of microfinance institutions on the premise that access to financial services enhances income-earning capacity. The paper finds that the female-owned enterprises demonstrated a slightly lower level of growth, and t-tests revealed that male-owned enterprises have higher asset levels, sales revenues, and numbers of employees.
