Literature about women and development usually provide evidence of how women in developing countries lack access to certain factors such as credit, land, and farm inputs, and how there may have been several restrictions on female labour such as gender casting which thus results in gender inequality and inefficiency. To address these claims, several different agencies have attempted to establish and impose certain targeted programs to provide women with inputs and credit, and access to land. This chapter looks into a framework that determines the conditions that causes inefficiency in intrahousehold allocation while considering matters of both equity and efficiency through examining and comparing land access both across household and within households.

Keywords:   credit, factor inputs, access to land, women, gender inequality, intrahousehold allocation, inefficiency, equity, efficiency
