Gender Specific Market Research
M2i through its various market research assignments has focussed on an in-depth analysis of differences in the needs and constraints of male vis a vis female loan borrowers. Some of our assignments had a specific focus on female entrepreneurs wherein our objective was to assess the financial needs and preferences of these female entrepreneurs.
Many of our researches for Micro Financial institutions, donor agencies like Water.org, Government are designed to capture the challenges of female borrowers (especially in respect of lack of access to credit, decision making, discretion on using collateral etc.) so that strategies can be suggested for their financial inclusion.
Gender Specific Product Development
Our Gender specific market research helps us in understanding the specific needs and constraints of male and female clients, which is then utilized for developing a gender-specific design and delivery mechanism for loan products.
M2i has conducted various impact assessment studies to understand the changes in the well-being of the households, especially women, after gender-specific project such as financial literacy training, sanitation loans.
