Abstract

Marcella Corsi and her co-workers analyze the social and economic impact that microfinance programmes have on participant's lives, particularly on women in the Mediterranean countries. They identify the changes of the women who took part in the microcredit programme. They examine the consumption levels, savings, housing conditions and investigate using an index of the changes whether the microcredit programme did indeed bring about women empowerment. Development (2006) 49, 67–74. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100247
