Gender and Micro Credit: Useful Resources

Published on 1 January 2001

International development organisations (bilaterals, multilaterals, national governments, international NGOs, and NGOs based in developed and developing countries) have for the past decade supported small-scale loans and credit in different forms (solidarity-groups, small enterprises, rotating saving schemes). There have been many texts written on the positive and negative long-term and short-term impacts of such projects and programmes, and considerable information on measures to combat gender inequity has been generated. This is a collection of relevant resources and information about institutions and people working in the field of Microcredit and small loans for women.
