Women's Entrepreneurship in Rural Greece

12.06.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

In rural areas female entrepreneurship may contribute to the economic diversification of households and the preservation of their social fabric. In Greece, small private enterprises owned by women and the women’s cooperatives are almost the only forms of women’s enterprises in rural areas. This paper highlights the image of women entrepreneurs and their enterprises and points out positive aspects and difficulties of these two forms of enterprises. In conclusion, the paper identifies areas where Greek policies should be focused on enhancing women’s involvement in entrepreneurship or improving their business efficiency.
