Summary
Microcredit, the extension of small amounts of collateral-free institument and income generation, is a Grameen Bank innovation. Since 1976, the Grameen Bank has pioneered a credit delivery system in rural Bangladesh, bringing banking to poor villagers with a focus primarily on women. This bank is now the largest microlending institution in Bangladesh. This study consists of an anthropological analysis of women borrowers' involvement with the credit program and implications of the lending structure for women borrowers, their household members, and bank workers. The research findings suggest that women become the primary target of the microcredit program because of their sociocultural vulnerability
