However, literature provides conflicting evidence and demonstrates that empowerment may not, or may only be partially achieved especially in Muslims community.

A quasi experimental approach was conducted through a cross sectional survey distributed to 500 of old and new clients. The analysis shows significant effects on participation in (AIM) microcredit on household decisions making and access to health insurance.
