This gender study explores women's participation and leadership in savings groups (SGs) in the context of an integrated five-year USAID-funded Development Food Aid Program (DFAP), entitled Wellness and Agriculture for LIfe Advancement (WALA) in the southern region of Malawi. The study serves to understand to what extent WALA-supported SGs advance women's meaningful empowerment and deeper long-lasting changes to gender power inequalities.
