The advantages or disadvantages of mixed-gender membership are less clear. In Yemen, women’s organizations have benefited crucially from the support of men in the communities (Ali and Baas 2004) and in Kenya and Uganda, mixed-gender MBOPs have been found to be effective (IFAD 2000c: 16; Kilavuka 2003). However, in contexts in which women’s status is significantly lower than men’s, mixed-gender MBOPs have difficulty in ensuring adequate women’s influence over decision-making and womenonly groups appear to be the best option (IFAD 2000c: 16; IFAD 2004d).

In 2002, SEWA received less than 3 per cent of its funds from its own members, with the remaining resources coming from “institutional donors” (SEWA 2004b). External factors that influence emergence and success Comparisons of these different types reveal some of the factors that influence success. Self-organizations of the poor are usually small enough for members to know each other well, have a sense of each others’ actions outside of the group, and exercise peer pressure. Their objectives and activities are defined and limited by the interests, contributions, and governance capacity of their members, which makes them relatively autonomous.

Under what conditions have organizations of the poor emerged and what are the main types? Who makes up their membership and how do they evolve over time? What are the internal and external factors that promote or inhibit sustained membership and effective impacts? Based on an institutional review of member-based organizations of the poor (MBOP), drawn primarily from the field experiences of staff of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN) working with rural institutions in developing countries and a selection of project reports produced by UN agencies, the authors attempt to answer these questions to enable emerging organizations of the poor, or those who assist them, to recognize some of the elements critical for the effectiveness and sustainability of these organizations.
