1.1 Background of the study. 

1.2 In most parts of Africa, women neither own land nor inherit it. In ability to own property not only effectively blocks the women from decision making but also creates a serious obstacle to obtaining credit, leading to lack of economic independence (Nycander, 1998) leading principles of the financial institutions continue to be inclined to possession of collateral and the ineligibility for credit coupled with lack of access to women's capability to participate in development activities. According to K.C Shild1ae a11d Lekshenry Shekhar (2003), while lending money, batlicers frequently secure the loa11s. In some cases, a banker may grant a loa11 on the personal security of the harrower or on the personal security couples of the borrower or on the personal security coupled with the guarantee of a 11 other person or on ever often he insists on collateral securities against loans. Many of the co-operatives and credit Women income also attracted only low income urban salary earners a11d have not been able to take root in rural areas (Muyenzi, 1999). Realizing that lack of access to financing at affordable rates by poor and in particular the women many development agencies have turned their firms towards utilizing credit as a development tool. For instance, many non-governmental organizations begun to realize that, the formal credit institutions a11d development progra111mes were not providing appropriate services to the poor women to e1mance their empowerment yet they remained committed to servicing an extremely narrow range of clients who happen to be men.
