Needs Assessment of Anondomela Women Entrepreneurs
The cottage, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (CMSMEs) significantly generate employment, reduce poverty, and contribute to the economy. Internet technology has also become an essential tool in recent years as e-commerce allows entrepreneurs to quickly communicate with their customers and backward linkage entrepreneurs. In addition, internet technology has also opened up scopes for newer and more advanced business avenues. This business platform, popularly known as e-commerce, reduces transaction costs and facilitates linkages to supply chains.
Bangladesh is no exception in its attempt to exploit the potential of e-commerce. With the increasing trend of e-commerce, the government has started focusing on the inclusiveness of women entrepreneurs. The need for providing technical, financial, and training assistance to women entrepreneurs and the requirement to identify and resolve legal barriers hindering the development of women entrepreneurs has thus become a primary objective of government and non-government development institutions.
