Focus seems to be on the type of credit constraint, rather than on gender per se, so the term "gender perspective" in the title is misleading.

Research question is "Does the gender of farmers affect the probability of access to credit" - rather, why not explore what factors might affect the probability of access to credit? How do gender dynamics within the household affect the access to credit?

HH level credit constraint variables - but if you have respondent level data, why not use individual level data, model it as husband and wife and explore intrahousehold dynamics?

Descriptive statistics show very interesting differences between men and women in terms of access, but simply having proportion of females will not tell you very much about what is going on there.

Gender dimension measured by proportion of female farmers in household - inadequate and also not very useful for policy?
