Client Profiling: a Qualitative Study of Experiences of Female Microfinance Clients

Shani Schechter


This study uses in-depth interviews to understand how women decide to be clients of an MFI, which factors guide loan usage and repayment, and women’s negotiating powers within the household. The focus is on the micro-credit client rather than the MFI.
