'This quite exhaustively researched, and incredibly well-nuanced and measured book, provides an eminently topical and critical resource for discerning stakeholders of the capacity of microfinance scheme for women to alleviate poverty, to promote female 'empowerment', and to advance gender equality in our new, and increasingly neoliberalised, global age. Drawing on rigorous analysis of an impressively wide range of qualitative and quantitative case studies from Latin America, Africa and Asia, accompanied by impeccable up-to-date referencing, Lynn Horton offers provocative insights and suggestions which are crucial to Agenda 2030, and which should be urgently heeded by scholars and policymakers alike. This refreshingly well-written and accessible text will be a 'must-read' for staff and students engaged in development and gender and development courses across the globe, as well as for those at the frontline of policy and praxis.' Sylvia Chant, London School of Economics and Political Science
