This paper attempts to probe into the fact that with the promotion of suitable microenterprise and appropriate training, women microentrepreneurs can be empowered. It is observed in the course of this study that microenterprises are highly location-specific. Nonetheless, the role of training is important in economically empowering rural women microentrepreneurs, as a result of which they enjoy greater efficiency in promoting and managing the enterprise, and thereby, enhance their income. Thus, selecting the right type of microenterprise and imparting necessary training to the rural women to start such enterprises will enable rural women to become economically and socially independent. Based on the findings, a range of strategic interventions such as cheap credit facilities, information about microenterprises suitable for that specific area, appropriate training for production and management and marketing links have to be provided to the women in the rural setup so as to empower them.
