This study documents the impact of offering a gender and business training to female microfinance clients in Vietnam on business outcomes and women empowerment using a randomised controlled trial.

Many researchers argue that management and business skills are crucial to increase productivity and growth of micro and small businesses, especially for women. Working with Tao Yeu May (people loving people) Fund, a large microfinance institution in the North of Vietnam operating since 1992, this study evaluates the impact of a module developed by the International Labor Organization (ILO) called the Gender and Entrepreneurship Together (GET) Ahead training.
