Today we are going focus on the role of women in the challenge to address development. We are going to look at how women and girls play a critical role in determining the rate at which a nation develops. We will also examine how microcredit loans (micro-financing) has played a critical role in many communities in providing women an opportunity to enter the formal economy and lift their family and communities out poverty and raise the standard of living.
