Every day women are starting new businesses. Whether small, medium-sized or large scale, motivated by pure survival or for self-fulfillment, female entrepreneurs are realizing ideas, generating income and creating employment opportunities for themselves and others. In fact, female entrepreneurs in developing countries are currently hailed as the new rising stars of the economies and different stakeholders have commended them as an important source of economic growth and development.
