In the world a men dominated society, women have always been underestimated and discriminated in all domains of life be it their family and social life or their economic and political life. Furthermore, the traditional duties of managing households make interruptions in their social and economic empowerment. Over the years various efforts have been made by many Government and Non-Government organizations to promote women empowerment in general and especially in rural areas. One such effort is the microfinance intervention. Many microfinance aims to promote self-sufficiency and economic development among people who don't have access to the traditional financial sector. They do this primarily by extending small loans without the strict requirements of traditional lenders. Recipients are usually the poor and "unbanked," but they also include people who are not poor but who lack the credit standing to borrow money to start or grow a business, most of these populations includes women.
