Lending to Women in Microfinance: Influence of Social Trust and National Culture
Raj Aggarwal (au); John W. Goodell (au); Lauren J. Selleck (au)
The preference of micro¥ånance institutions for women borrowers is generally attributed to two reasons: women borrowers are more trustworthy and they have greater social impact. However, the role of social trust with regard to this gender preference has not been adequately investigated. Controlling for the social outreach goals of Microfinance institutions (MFIs), the authors document that MFIs favor women more in low trust countries, suggesting that women are targeted to offset low social trust. They also examine how the nature of trust formation affects this relationship between gender targeting and trust. These results should be of considerable interest to policymakers and scholars.
