Gender Issues in Microfinance and Repayment Performance: The Case of a Nicaraguan Microfinance Institution
Silvia L. Saravia-Matus,Jimmy A. Saravia-Matus
Encuentro , 2012,
Abstract: Conventional wisdom and increasing empirical evidence in microfinance hold that women are better risks than men. In the present work, a logit model ontrolling for a range of borrower and loan characteristics was carried out to assess the validity of this statement by comparing repayment rates. The study includes a sample of loans disbursed by a Nicaraguan microfinance institution during the years 2003-2004, a period characterized by high oil prices. A dichotomous dependent variable is created,taking the value of 1 if the credit turned out to be of the best quality i.e. an “A” credit by Nicaraguan regulations, and 0 otherwise. The dependent variable is regressed on variables summarizing the characteristics of the borrower and the loan to investigate the impact of gender on repayment performance. The results provide significant evidence that female client’s repayment performance is in fact better than that of male’s at the conventional levels of statistical significance. However, the results also show that the perceived difference in gender risk is lower than what popular wisdom would suggest when borrower characteristics and other exogenous economic variables are taken into account. With the present sample, we conclude that other characteristics of the borrower as well as changes in the economic environment can have a similar or larger impact on risk than gender when it comes to repayment performance.

Abstract: The study employs binary logistic regression analysis to investigate the gender side of lending using crosssectional data from 198 credit unions collected from the Credit Union Association (CUA) of Ghana. Contrary to anecdotal and empirical evidence in the literature, evidence adduced in this paper underpins the conclusion that female borrowers are not better than their male counterparts. Consequently, the paper contends that lenders in Ghana should not expect any improvement in their loan repayment performance if they lend more to females. Instead, lenders who contemplate better repayment performance should strengthen their management and integrate group lending into their lending operations.

Abstract: This paper investigated the determinants of loan repayment performance among women self-help groups in Bayelsa State, Nigeria. A structured questionnaire was used to gather information from one hundred and twelve (112) women farmers from eight communities within the States, using the multistage sampling technique. The study revealed that credit was available for agricultural production, processing and petty trading among women farmers. The mean amount of loan disbursed to farmers was N18,147.3 while the mean amount of N15,000 was repaid. Loan repayment percentage was determined to be 83.73% while percentage default was 17.27%. The estimated regression model indicated that women as household heads (X2), interest rate (X3) and household size (X4), negatively and significantly affected the loan repayment performance of women farmers while price stability of farm proceeds (X5) and commitment to self help groups (X6), positively and significantly affected the loan repayment of women farmers in self help groups in the area. It was therefore recommended that more self help credit/saving groups be established in the state and that financial institutions within the state should form a linkage with this groups for efficient loan scheme.

Abstract: This paper investigates the effect of bank loans and advances on industrial performance in Nigeria between 1975 and 2009. Co-integration and Error Correction technique was adopted for the analysis. The results showed that industrial performance co-integrated with all the identified explanatory variables. Industrial sector as dependent variable is proxied by real GDP, while Commercial Banks’ Loan and Advances to Industrial Sector (BLM), Aggregate Saving (SAV), Interest rate (INT), Inflation Rate (INF) are the independent variables. This suggests that the behavior of real Gross Domestic Product contributed by industrial sector in Nigeria is significantly explained by the commercial banks’ loan and advances to industrial sector, aggregate saving, interest rate and inflation rate. The findings implies that every action towards infrastructural development, strengthening of commercial banks, deregulation of interest rate, encouragement of saving among rural dwellers and reduction of inflation rate will boost the performance of industrial sector significantly.
