Women Entrepreneurship and Small Enterprises in India

By D. Nagayya, S. Shahina Begum

In India, women entrepreneurship has emerged as an effective strategy for empowering them in terms of employment and income generation. Thus, women must be conversant with modern technologies and management practices in the context of the global environment. Small enterprises are the best vehicle for stimulating women's entrepreneurial talent and participation in the development process. Small enterprises provide a livelihood, restrain rural-urban migration, generate export earnings, and touch upon the lives of the marginalized, disadvantaged, and vulnerable women in both urban and rural areas of India. This book examines women's entrepreneurship in small enterprises in India. It will be of interest to those involved/interested in the socio-economic empowerment of women through small enterprises, including researchers, academics, industry associations, and policy formulators.
