Why Women Enter into Entrepreneurship? An Emerging Conceptual Framework Based on the Peruvian Case
AbstractThe study identifies the various reasons why women become entrepreneurs, considering their life cycle and the factors that have encouraged them, using the qualitative paradigm based on case studies of twenty-four women entrepreneurs in Peru. The research identified six profiles according to the different routes by which women choose entrepreneurship: Young Women with Employment Options, Growing Women with External Constraints, Consolidated Women with a Trunked Career, Natural Young Women, Growing Women, and Consolidated Professional Women. The findings proposed that women entrepreneurs are not a homogeneous group, considering a sole dimension to understand why women become entrepreneurs is an inadequate simplification.
