India has relatively fewer businesses launched by women…
Despite all-round progress in various spheres, so far as businesses promoted by women, India lags behind. However there has been an improvement in the situation in recent times with women launching start-ups in sectors like infotech, web, fashion, apparel and hospitality.
Women entrepreneurs face problems that their male counterparts do not encounter. These problems include difficulty in accessing Bank loans, lack of networking opportunities, social barriers, absence of mentoring and support etc. However, these limitations are being gradually overcome.
