Recent research has shown that women engage in entrepreneurship at the grassroots level to effectively generate individual value creation, overcome poverty and to enhance their societal and economic advancement. As productive sources in business, rural female entrepreneurs are both direct and indirect leaders in their communities who pursue a diverse range of value creation targets to support their customers. The sample for this study incorporated 266 rural women ranging from 18 to 60 years old.
