Transforming the Landscape of Leadership in Microfinance: Maintaining the Focus on Women

Summary

This paper offers institutional approaches to increase the representation of women professionals in microfinance. Women’s leadership has been central to microfinance from the inception of the industry. Many of the industry’s pioneers were women, and as microfinance institutions grew, women were well represented in management. To this day, in comparison with other industries, the representation of women in leadership remains strong in microfinance. In recent years, however, microfinance providers have been strained by unprecedented rates of growth, the increasing need for skill sets from the private sector, and pressure to become more commercially motivated. There is evidence that with these changes in the industry, the percentage of women in leadership positions is beginning to decline.
