Abstract [en]

This chapter examines female participation and strategies in French local credit markets in the eighteenth century. A sample of about 2,000 notarial loans from two rural manors of south Alsace constitutes the backbone of this analysis. This chapter posits that women's participation in credit markets was of significance not only for their household and their communities, but that it also granted them social benefits in return. This chapter is therefore a tentative exploration of the paradigm of empowerment through the prism of female credit activities.
