Abstract:What's unique and interesting about these self-employed women is the immense shift in the amount of power they wield in the household context in a context where they have traditionally had limited power. This study finds that the women receiving some support from NGOs undoubtedly have more authority and autonomy at work and are also more involved in networks which significantly influences their bargaining power within the household.
