Gender inequalities are of the main problems in almost every society. Like all other parts of the system, economic and business environment haven’t attempted sufficiently in struggling with this issue. When these inequalities combined with development problems the growth of poverty among women and their exclusion from society multiplies. Although there is so much struggle for constructing equal society women are still considered as ignorant part of the society and hence, vulnerable beings, who have to be protected and taken care of. In this sense women have not much chance for being “independent individual” both in social and economic terms. However these constraints upon women's vulnerability and inability are tried to be changed by Microfinance system to move from the perspective of women's empowerment. In this paper, we try to analyze whether the performance of practices by the non-governmental organizations ability to achieve objective to improve the living conditions and interest of the women in the society or not by comparing to micro credit organizations in Turkey. We also try to answer whether women's participation in employment contributes to well-being their lives and contributes their role in working life
