Column 1 provides figures for the number of women trained and Column 2 those trained who also received credit and were engaged in micro-enterprise activities relevant to the training. Column 3 indicates how many of the women in Column 2 increased their incomes (in Group 1 within the first four months) and Column 4 the level of contribution made by the credit to this increase.

N.B. One woman in the Peru sample who made significant gains is excluded because she was not in receipt of credit.
