When you hear of entrepreneurs, what image comes to your mind?
You’re brain probably conjures up an image of a 20-something fresh out of college or college drop-out, who sits in a garage or at his desk and creates some earth-transforming business. However, you wouldn’t believe that a woman like the one above is an entrepreneur!
TECH Outreach has been collaborating with its partner in Sri Lanka (Rural Women’s Forum) for years and has gathered a list of 58 women from the age group of 24-66 (Age is not a determinant of success!). You might get stunned by their successful entrepreneur stories. Who says women can’t earn enough money to support themselves?
The categories these women are engaged in are:
- cattle rearing
- dried fish processing
- poultry rearing
- sundry shop operations
- sewing services
- food wholesaling
- coconut wholesaling
- plack gram and peanut farming
- goat rearing
Here is the biggest shocker – the profit each entrepreneur makes on a monthly basis reaches up to 88%!
Don’t you think these should be turned into Harvard case studies?Click here to download and get introduced to these amazing 58 women.
