Abstract [en]

Microfinance programs aim to reduce income poverty while also empowering women. Increasing women’s resources result in increased wellbeing of the family, especially children. The definition and interpretation of women empowerment and its measurement varies across different studies. Robust empirical evidence from India shows significant empowerment impact of a major microfinance program via women’s self-help groups.
