The democracy itself depends on equal participation of both sexes. Entrepreneurship activities are available for both sexes officially, but in reality numerous obstacles exist for women entrepreneurs. Maybe the most important obstacle is their limited access to financial services. The lack of financial services could be overcome using the banking with the poor strategy. As the name implies, this concept abandons the traditional banking views, and has the objective to offer financial services to the financially fragile population. The objective of this paper is to present the numerous strategies and products of banking with the poor and the way in which these products could impact the women entrepreneurship level. Moreover, banking for poor was initially developed for poor economies, thus some changes should be made to the concept as a result of the differences in the functioning of poor and emerging economies.
