Abstract

The issue of gender discrimination has been at the front burner in literature. Women are increasingly assuming greater roles. In spite of that, response to their quest for credit and other critical resources are often below expectation. The Nigerian Agricultural and Cooperative Bank (NACB) is a development bank, concerned with providing credits to small-scale farm holders. This paper therefore examines the level of discrimination and participation in terms of loan disbursement of the bank between 1990 and 1999. The study found that women were discriminated against, and called for a cultural change in loan administration.
