Abstract 

Poverty is a risk factor associated with gender-based violence; it also often intersects with and reinforces gender inequality. Various microfinance and other economic empowerment approaches have been implemented to try to address this intersection. These approaches typically aim to empower women by increasing their economic resources and reducing gender inequalities in their intimate relationships. Several economic interventions that show promise in targeting individuals and risk factors associated with violence are outlined below.
