Dr. Sudhansu Sekhar Nayak, Kusa Panigrahi, Anupama Mishra

Abstract


In a fast developing country like India, the forces of commercialization, modernization and industrialization are actively operating and changing the traditional modes of production into modern capitalistic enterprises. Women are the most pre significant segment of the society. In order to improve the status and position of women at home and in the society at large, it is necessary to achieve economic independence for women.

International Labour Organization has defined entrepreneurs as "people who have the capability to see and evaluate business opportunities; to gather necessary resources to take advantage of them, and initiate appropriate action to ensure success". The present study is an attempt to analyze the development of women entrepreneurs and to access the performance and socio-economic conditions. It also contemplates an appreciation of the problems faced by women entrepreneurs in managing their business and to evaluate the schemes and impact of policies supported by state and central Governments.
