Entrepreneurship is a herculean task for women in India but if carried successfully can inculcate confidence among them and making them more conscious about their rights. Development of women entrepreneurship is very low in India in comparison to developed countries. There are number of obstacles faced by women entrepreneurs during start-up stage and running up of their enterprise. These obstacles need to be addressed so that women can make a significant contribution in sustained economic development and social progress of our country. The present study tries to examine the financial problems faced by women entrepreneurs in Haryana during start-up stage and running up of their enterprise. The study brought out that lack of adequate information about the schemes of financial institutions for women entrepreneurs and reluctance of officials to finance women entrepreneurs are the main problems.

Abstract


Entrepreneurship is a herculean task for women in India but if carried successfully can inculcate confidence among them and making them more conscious about their rights. Development of women entrepreneurship is very low in India in comparison to developed countries. There are number of obstacles faced by women entrepreneurs during start-up stage and running up of their enterprise. These obstacles need to be addressed so that women can make a significant contribution in sustained economic development and social progress of our country. The present study tries to examine the financial problems faced by women entrepreneurs in Haryana during start-up stage and running up of their enterprise. The study brought out that lack of adequate information about the schemes of financial institutions for women entrepreneurs and reluctance of officials to finance women entrepreneurs are the main problems.
