Empowering Rural Women through Mobile Services
Nagarajan, P.; Jiji, G. Wiselin
Journal of Educational Technology, v7 n2 p52-58 Jul-Sep 2010
This paper is intended as a gender issue to the rural finance practitioners. It highlights the questions that need to be asked and addressed to the gender mainstream. It will also be useful to gender experts to wish to increase their understanding on specific gender issues in rural finance through mobile services. It focuses on rural microfinance that is accessible to poor and low-income rural households and individuals. The delivery of other types of rural finance involves different challenges and issues. The lack of reliable information on gender issues makes it difficult to derive any conclusion. The mobile services are further integrated with a mobile cash application. It provides cash in the absence of banks to the isolated remote communities. So the product buyers and companies can outsource the work of the rural women and can pay the women, and in turn, enable women to buy their necessaries.
