Women endure prejudice and exclusion in every aspect of their lives due to a variety of socioeconomic and
cultural limitations. Women have less authority and less control over resources than males in practically every society.
A nation's economic and social advancement depends on women's emancipation since they make up 50% of the
population and one-third of its human resources; they may be a more powerful force in the development of human
resources than males.
There are several ways in which women's empowerment may be achieved via the use of microfinance services. A total
of 79 million women in the world's poorest areas were served by microfinance services by the end of 2006. Thus,
microfinance may have a substantial impact on gender equality and the promotion of sustainable livelihoods and
improved working conditions for women.

did the money was spent. A sample of 100 respondents was asked questions and results were analysed using statistical
