It makes the society realize that economically empowering women is benefiting the entire society. Women contribute towards overall nurturing of family. Their major chunk of income goes to meeting the needs of family. It has been shown that women invest extra income in their children, providing a route to sustainable development. The women from a very poor economic background are involved in various economic activities to support their family. Economic empowerment is one of the vital components of development which could be realized only through mobilization of resources and independence in utilization of resources. The participation of women in economic activities upgrades the socio-economic status of those with low income and less monthly earnings. The economic empowerment of women requires various enabling atmosphere through which their capacity may be enhanced for venturing into entrepreneurial activities.
