Focus Area: Ensure Gender Equality

Case Study: Gender Equity Through Access to Finance: Pamuan Jaya Panners Collective Indonesia

Indonesia’s artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) sector is estimated to produce approximately US$5 billion in gold each year. This economic activity is a vital source of income for some 300,000 artisanal gold miners and their families countrywide (McGrew 2016). However, as in many ASM communities across the world, women working in Indonesia’s ASGM sector face many gender-specific challenges. These include unfair allocation of property rights and patriarchal social norms that can disadvantage them in pursuing ownership, education, enabling technologies, and secondary employment opportunities (CIRDI 2020).
