As women's entrepreneurship plays an important role in the development and growth of developed countries
the importance of promoting women in economic activity
is increasingly becoming reality in all developing countries. To promote women by bringing them
into general development and improving their economic situation and giving them
new job opportunities for income generation, self-employed and
entrepreneurship in different social and economic fields.
Experience shows that
are large women in most developing countries who can and will
participate in economic activity. An important tool for strengthening women is arrogant,
which has been adopted as an effective tool for poverty reduction and approach to development
. Micro units have become very popular especially in the development of
economy. "A special solution for solving women's problems with funding has been [microfinance] [microfinance]. Micro finance therefore appears to offer a" win-win "solution as both
financial institutions and poor customers benefit from it (Murdoch, 1999 ). "
Women in Africa now represent 52% of the population of 805 million. Therefore, they should be
seriously considering and investing in education and their work
in formal business. Micro units are particularly important for
starting their own business with regard to growing interest among women who tend to
become or already be entrepreneurs. Studies of Yoruba women in Nigeria, have described all the characteristics of women entrepreneurs
. These women have been involved in commercial business or
business activities from the former colonial era (Akinwumi, 2000). Akinwumi named two types of
female entrepreneurs: "Aljapa" (who are tourist traders) and "Alarobo" (described as
the little ones). In fact, they are described as very sensible businessmen. These women have
started taking important political positions in their environment, thus enhancing their positions
and positions of wealth gained in business. Interestingly, these women
entrepreneurs started micro or small businesses with minimal and no satisfactory
knowledge about new companies. This study also shows that women develop
their business, but mostly in informal sectors with certain exceptions.
According to UNDP 2004, it could have been concluded that
Africa has only 6% of women's labor in higher places, such as managers and managers in
larger companies. In addition, 23% of women in Africa work in service industries and 5% had
employed in industry. Students, women in Africa, work in agriculture and in food processing
and much less in agriculture outside agriculture. This is understandable because there is one side
side need in many African countries, and on the other hand, women's need
supports and helps the family to survive. Accordingly, women do very much work without
specifying working time on the estate, by doing household work, selling on the market, etc.
After that, African women did not respect the community they gained
Besides difficult working conditions of women, women face another problem. According to
Statistical data from the Addis Ababa-based Economic Committee of Africa (ECA) – provide
about 58% of all African HIV infected patients (Akinwumi, O, 2000).
The problem, the number of women still struggles for more rights and engage in politics
in their countries. These women have shown their talents and showed that they should be seriously considered important in the political and economic spheres of society.
Therefore, government agencies around the world are creating and implementing
projects to encourage entrepreneurship as a way beyond poverty. Many programs specifically
target women in the third world. This organization has helped dozens of low income
women start their own business.
