This paper aims at focusing on female entrepreneurs in Kosovo. It treats the conditions and perspectives of female entrepreneurship development and an array of problems that female entrepreneurs are facing.
To get a better picture on the profile of the female entrepreneurs in Kosovo, motives, problems and perspectives that stand in front of female entrepreneurs in Kosovo, a survey was conducted during the period of January-February 2015. From 90 distributed questionnaires, 70 responses were received, which means the response rate was 78 per cent.
The authors found that the majority of female entrepreneurs in Kosovo operate micro-businesses; are well educated; mostly operate in the trade sector; majority of them generate incomes from 20,000-40,000; most of them have business experience up to six years; obtaining financing sources is the main problem; and are good in financial management.
A useful information source for students, academics and policy-makers.
