Women's Entrepreneurship in South Africa.

Eva Vogel

Women in South African township communities may depend on entrepreneurial activities for a livelihood for themselves and their families. While this group has traditionally faced particular barriers, notably access to finance and networking opportunities , they form the pillars of society and have learned, developed and adapted specific strengths and skills which enable them to achieve success. These strengths can be named as resourcefulness, willingness and ability to learn new skills (e.g. sewing) and to invest intangible resources such as time and labour to whatever extent needed, as well as organisational skills, managing both the everyday life of family and work. It is noteworthy that many NGOs addressing issues of poverty, nutrition and healthcare in the townships prefer to work with women in the communities rather then men. This is an implicit recognition that change may be brought about in these communities through interventions centred on women, often specifically mothers.
