Challenges among women entrepreneurs in Mexico
International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business, Vol. 15, No. 3 (2012) pp. 389 – 395
There is an array of challenges for women entrepreneurs in developing countries that arise from the socio-cultural, economic, legal, political, and technological environments within their surroundings. Moreover, unfavourable conditions in local regulatory, normative, and cognitive systems place additional questions on women who desire to become entrepreneurs or to expand an entrepreneurial business. The arguments to support women entrepreneurship in the context of Mexican socio-cultural environment are developed in this paper with a focus to understand better how such barriers affect the entrepreneurial goals. This study discusses the life framework, empowerment, and identifies socio-cultural factors that affect the entrepreneurial process among women.
