Abstract

In many developing countries, microfinance has become a critical component in implementing poverty reduction strategies, which are often addressed through social business and female entrepreneurship. Despite poor individuals being excluded from formal credit, microfinance organisations are delivering opportunities for them to obtain small amounts of credit. This chapter examines whether gender-differentiated social and human capital matters in social entrepreneurship, and how loans received by Bangladeshi men and women are being used in productive ways. It identifies barriers that might exclude the poorest women from these microfinance programs in Bangladesh. This analysis has important policy implications for donors, microfinance institutions and NGOs operating in developing countries as it focuses on employment generation and poverty alleviation, and also on impact on poor women in microcredit programs.
