ABSTRACT
This article presents information from a research paper by Rose M. Prasad, Department of Finance, Central Michigan University about discrimination by banks against women entrepreneurs seeking loans. Research on the impact of demands for higher interest and more collateral are explored. Research has shown that discrimination against women entrepreneurs is less evident in developed countries where competition for business is a factor. The author hopes that as the financial markets and banking sectors of developing countries grow, gender bias for loans to women entrepreneurs will decrease.
