Microcredit not All Good for Women

This year's Nobel Peace Price went to the founder of the microcredit bank, Muhammad Yunus. An article in The Dominion newspaper, "Microcredit and Women's Poverty" critiques microcredit for not doing anything to change the structural conditions of poverty. The article argues that microcredit fits nicely into the idea that poverty is an individual problem, therefore shifting the responsibility of poverty from governments onto the backs of poor women.
