A Study of Impact of Indian Women Entrepreneur in Small Business Unit & Self Help Group

Dr. F. N. Mahajan, Prof. Parasharam R. Sohani


Women entrepreneurs unlike a struggle before have been accepted and encouraged by extended support from the family and friends. Awareness through media and parents in today’s world wanting the best for their children, irrespective of a girl or a boy has helped in increasing numbers of women entrepreneurs. There is a segment though that is still conservative and with the way the Indians are adapting to the western culture, it is not going to be too long to overcome such social pressures. It is always a great start for any woman who organizes herself and is able to dedicate to it with passion, seek opportunities and aggressively bonds with her decision making. I strongly believe the “Persistence is the key to success. When she is 100% passionate about the product and 10 times more passionate about the business concept, she is in the right direction”.

Women Entrepreneurs may be defined as the women or a group of women who initiate, organize and operate a business enterprise. Self-Help Group is a small voluntary association of poor people preferably from the same socio-economic back drop. The micro-credit given to them makes them enterprising; it can be all women group, all-men group or even a mixed group. A self-help group (SHG usually composed of 10–20 local women).
