A Business to Call Her Own - Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF)

Posted By Saurabh Lall, Aspen Institute - ANDE, Thursday, November 17, 2011
April 2010

This study provides an overview of the status of women’s businesses, focusing on microenterprises, which represent the majority of these businesses in the region. It presents key quantitative and qualitative data for six countries in Latin America: Guatemala, Nicaragua, Colombia, Bolivia, Mexico and Peru. Through a series of case studies, it explores the differences between men’s and women’s businesses in these countries and the main barriers women face as they start and grow their businesses. Special emphasis is given to the role of access to financial services and to how the growth and development of the microfinance industry in Latin
America has supported women microentrepreneurs.
