SYNOPSIS

Many people, especially women, often struggle to prove they own the land they work or live on, often denying them the opportunity to earn more by renting out the property or using it as collateral for loans. Through its Gender Action Plan, the World Bank has helped women in Ethiopia, Honduras, Indonesia, Kosovo, Nicaragua, and Vietnam better understand their rights and secure clear land title to their properties, enabling them to get more out of their most important asset.
