Access to financial services is one of the key constraints of female entrepreneurship in Cameroon. Using a Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) Model, Dr. Kame's study assesses the effects of these financial frictions faced by female entrepreneurs on macroeconomic performances in Cameroon. His results also show that job creation, investment, consumption and economic growth are affected by the imperfection of the credit market in the country.
