PN 2003-16: Efficiency and Gender Concerns: Issues Confronting the Philippine Credit Cooperatives

This Policy Notes looks at the issue of gender concerns in credit cooperatives from a different perspective. Specifically, it looks at the implications of women participation on the performance of credit cooperatives. It points out that the incorporation of gender issues in microfinance should not necessarily just limit to directing a program towards women as clients but rather and more importantly to involving women as policymakers and managers of MFIs and assessing their contribution to the development of MFIs.
