Gender Baseline Survey: Household Resource Allocation and the Capacity of Poor Women to Grow Their Businesses in Morocco

October 7, 2010

This survey provides an in-depth case study of how Moroccan women’s roles and responsibilities impact the growth or non-growth of their businesses. Providing credit to poor women can encourage the financial stability and economic progress of low-income households. But in Morocco as in many countries, gender-based constraints, burdens and responsibilities mean that more than credit is necessary if women are to make progress women in lifting their families out of poverty.

The report is part of an ongoing series of Gender Baseline Surveys based on analysis conducted by Women’s World Banking with clients from a diverse group of Women’s World Banking network members. The goal of the series is to offer insights that can help MFIs become the “financial service provider of choice” for women in their respective markets and countries.Download the English version
