Ram Krishna Vishwakarma and Rachana Mujoo
By giving the impoverished and marginalised segments of society access to financial services, microfinance institutions (MFIs) have become a potent tool for advancing women's emancipation. This study intends to investigate the part MFIs play in empowering women in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (U.P.). The study examines how MFIs affect the economic, social, and political empowerment of women, among other aspects of women's empowerment. Additionally, it looks at the difficulties MFIs encounter and makes suggestions on how to improve their contribution to women's empowerment in Uttar Pradesh.
