Gender equality (gender equality) is not observed even in countries considered to be civilized and advanced. Women are more difficult to find a job and become a real leader, for example, the President of one of the world’s leading powers. Those few women to take on their fragile shoulders the burden of governance, as Angela Merkel — first female Chancellor in German history are more an exception than the norm.
The Russian Federation, the Constitution of which guarantees men and women equal rights, is no exception, and the women of the country is very difficult, sometimes even the most simple questions, the solution of which men take less time and effort.

At first glance, the problems with getting loan in MFO for women does not exist.

Of course, if it meets all the requirements that a specific microfinance organization makes to customers. Moreover, some MFIs, in General, I think the ladies responsible clients, who often have overdue loans.
