WOMEN represent an estimated 70% of those living on less than $2/day. Cultural and legal inequalities in developing countries create obstacles that prevent women from starting and financing new businesses.This leaves them more vulnerable to poverty, forced labour and violence.

Yet, women consistently show inspiring resilience and determination to find ways to break free from poverty. Many studies, and our own experiences, confirm that women with access to financial services can dramatically improve the quality of life for their families.

In families where women have an income, they have a voice in financial decisions, resulting in better nutrition, health and education for children.

When family needs are met, women are more likely to invest in their community.

When women have the skills to participate in public life, government corruption declines.

The gains that women achieve by accessing microfinance services are almost 3 times more likely to be reinvested in their children, providing a powerful generational multiplier that accelerates economic growth.
