Review "The bulk of the book's 17 contributions consist of concise, self-contained case studies - all of which seem to bear the hallmark of judicious editorial work ... Among the most informative and engaging of these is Jayshree Vyas's fascinating account of the evolution of women's banking in India's Self-Employed Women's Association ... Ruth Pearson's concluding chapter offers some perceptive and refreshingly original observations culled from syntheseis of the case studies in the volume as a whole ... Women and Credit should definitely have a place as recommended reading on more general gender courses." --Sylvia Chant, London School of Economics

"Women in Credit is a substantial addition to our knowledge of the role of women in exploiting economic opportuntites and niches through the use of credit agencies and other initiatives... [The book] covers a wide area in the fields of credit and microfinance. It explains why projects that provide credit suceed and gives reasons when others do not. The book will be of considerable use to all those involved in planning in developed and less developed communities, as well as bering of general interest to non-professionals." --Development Southern Africa
