Aisha Al Abri, Swadhin Mondal


Abstract: The small medium - sized enterprises (SMEs) play an important role in economic development in Oman. Omani women play an active role in this development process. However, various studies show that women participation rate in economic activities is not expected level. For improving female participation rate and economic empowerment, government implemented various programme for women. This study analyze the impact of small funded project on women economic empowerment in Oman. The study found that the income from the project has a positive relation with household decision making and it has a significant effect on decision - making power. However, the volume or the cost of a project has a positive relation with income generation but it has no significant effect on it. Nevertheless, project cost has a positive relation and a significant effect on skills development and participation in society among the benefited women. Furthermore, there is a significant effect of the small funded project on skills development and participation in society among the benefited women. The study conclude that the participation of Omani women in economic fields is an important and effective contribution to society. The free economy and the challenges of globalization have forced Omani women to participate effectively in a knowledge - based market economy. The government encouraged the ambition of Omani women and it continues to stimulate women?s roles in developing the economy by supporting them through training, guidance and financial support, as well as assisting them in the marketing process.
