BRIDGE Report 61: Gender and Micro Credit - Useful Resources
Publisher: Institute of Development Studies UK
Publication Date: Nov 2001
International development organisations have for the past decade supported small-scale loans and credit in different forms (solidarity-groups, small enterprises, rotating saving schemes). Much has been written on the positive and negative long-term and short-term impacts of such projects and programmes. Considerable information on such measures to combat gender inequity has been generated.
