Female entrepreneurship is vital for our future. Collectively we can make a change by closing the gap between men and women in the workforce.
Entrepreneurs are those adventurous, daredevils who drive deep into the pressing problems of society and try to find solutions to them, not by leaving the responsibilities in the reins of the government or business, but by trying to change systems as a whole and persuading societies to take new initiatives.
Kashmir with its scenic beauty of the valleys, sizzling climate and apart being a tourist paradise is also a haven for business.
A new era has emerged for women entrepreneurship in Kashmir with Women Entrepreneurs being capable of achieving great heights in every field.
Likewise Muslim Women Entrepreneurs have gradually made their mark in their business profession. They are proving nothing less in the business field as Women Entrepreneurs.
