Friday, 31 August, 2018
Abstract: 
This study measures the impact of a business training program for women in Kenya, finding that training increases the profits, sales, mental health, and subjective well-being of women. Moreover, this growth comes without significant negative spillovers on other women operating in the same markets, so that overall market size grows.
