A woman entrepreneur faces various challenges, from starting the idea to the venture's survival. They have to face challenges like a patriarchal society, marketing problems, family conflicts, shortage of raw materials, high cost of production, the crisis of intermediaries, lack of confidence, lack of training, and lack of entrepreneurial ability.
