Abstract

The intervention of grassroots development initiatives embedded with microcredit programs have seen the emergence of the relationship between socio-economic development and women empowerment, thus suggesting a solid conceptual link to women's empowerment. This chapter provides a discussion on the quality of life and women empowerment among low-income households in Malaysia. The focus is on how entrepreneurial development initiatives, rolled out by both the government and microcredit/developmental organizations, impact the quality of life and women empowerment of these households.
