A woman or number of women who start, organise, as well as run a business can be considered entrepreneurs.

As a group, women entrepreneurs are also those who think up a business idea, start it, organise the various components that make up the enterprise, and run it. They take on the risks and uncertainty that come with running a business.

Women’s participation in the workplace is a relatively recent phenomenon. Since the breakdown of the aforementioned joint family system and a need for additional income in the face of rising prices, women have begun to enter the most competitive business world. As a result, women have begun to enter the business field in order to supplement their family’s income in today’s high-inflation economy.
