Making Ends Meet: African Women's Health Concerns Affect Economic Development

Maxine DownsThe women of Mali, West Africa have traditionally served as caretakers of their families—families that are too often plagued by disease and illness. But to what degree do these health concerns cause financial strains on these women? Anthropology doctoral candidate Maxine Downs has received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to further her dissertation research on the decision-making processes of entrepreneurial women of Mali, one of the poorest countries in the world.

After applying for more than a year, Downs says she received nothing but rejection letters until the National Institutes of Health recognized the potential of her research and awarded her the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award in fall 2001. The three-year grant gave Downs the necessary funds to complete field work in Mali.

Her research focuses on microcredit programs of West Africa, which provide small loans and savings opportunities to those who traditionally have been excluded from commercial financial services. Downs set out to understand how health and nutritional issues are intertwined with economic development efforts, in order to shed light on the need for a more integrative approach combining microcredit programs with health educational training. Downs says that poverty is a complex issue and simply giving people money, without additional training, will not address the need for better health and nutritional support. "Women are the primary health care providers of their households, and in a country where families are effected by disease and illness, health concerns may compromise a women's ability to work outside the domestic sphere, as well as influence her decision-making process." A portion of Down's work focuses on entrepreneurial Malian woman and their economic decision-making practice.

During her field work from January 2002 to December 2003, Downs studied three groups: women who participated in microcredit programs with health training; women who took part in microcredit programs without health training; and women who did not participate in either the microcredit or health training programs. "Decision-making models are of extreme importance to social scientists across disciplines," Down says. "Models provide a better understanding of how and why people make the types of decisions they do. Furthermore, advancing our knowledge of such decision-making processes can better inform our cultural understanding of complex issues of the intersection of poverty and health, which in turn can contribute to international work efforts of poverty alleviation in Africa, as well as worldwide."

Downs recently returned from the field and is now in the process of analyzing and writing her research findings. "What stands out the most to me is how the women would talk about the difficulty of paying back the loans, citing high interest rates as the primary problem," says Downs. "With high interest rates, it was impossible for the women to realize a profit. As a result, most of the older cloth dyers no longer use microcredit as a resource for credit. It is primarily the younger, less experienced women who use it as a way to build their inventory until their client base grows. Therefore, the present design of the program is not meeting the needs of these women." Downs plans to finish writing her dissertation and graduate in the spring of 2005.
