Title

Gender and the growth and dynamics of micro-enterprises

Author

Downing, Jeanne

Description

This paper establishes the importance of gender variables to microenterprise development and explores contradictions between women in development (WID) and growth-oriented approaches to such development. Growth-oriented schemes can ignore women's needs and harm their economic interests. The debate on poverty alleviation vs. economic growth is presented in this context.
