Utilizando los datos de la encuesta de Caracterización Socioeconómica CASEN 2000, este trabajo evalúa el impacto en la generación de ingresos de una mujer que logra convertirse en microempresaria en Chile, basándose en técnicas paramétricas y no paramétricas. Los resultados son robustos con ambas metodologías y van en apoyo de la formación de microempresas dirigidas por mujeres al encontrar un impacto positivo y estadísticamente significativo en los ingresos de las microempresarias. El premio por convertirse en microempresaria de microempresas con 2 a 5 trabajadores y de microempresas de 6 a 9 trabajadores es superior a 63% y 105 %, respectivamente. Se encuentra además que el impacto aumenta cuando la microempresaria alcanza un nivel de educación superior completa.
