Why is it important to target women with microfinance and enterprise development projects l.jpg

Why is it important to target women with microfinance and enterprise development projects?

First, global experience shows that women have an outstanding record in paying back microloans.

Second, the impact on poverty reduction is higher by targeting women.

Finally, many women are natural entrepreneurs since they are the managers of the most common budget on earth—the family budget.

Why is it important to target women with microfinance and enterprise development projects?

Women continue to be responsible for more than 90 percent of domestic and childcare responsibilities.

Their enterprises are also less productive because they have less experience and less training in running a business.

On the other hand, they invest less of their profits in micro enterprises and instead invest it in their children and/or their families.

Why is it important to target women with microfinance and enterprise development projects?

Microfinance institutions must not be content with reaching women only.

Institutions must understand how women approach their work, how they manage their micro enterprises and how they spend their increased income.

They must also play a role in changing perceptions and understanding why empowering women leads to a stronger society and a stronger country.
