Africa's female entrepreneurs: Towards funding success

Aoife Hanley, Holger Görg, Cecília Hornok and Charles Godfred Ackah

No 24/2021, PEGNet Policy Briefs from PEGNet - Poverty Reduction, Equity and Growth Network, Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW)

Abstract: Opportunities for well-paid employment for women are scarce in many African countries. Entrepreneurship is therefore one way in which women can earn a decent livelihood for themselves and their families. Despite the potential opportunities arising from entrepreneurship, the possibilities are often not fully exploited. Female entrepreneurs in the developing world are severely underperforming. In this PEGNet Policy Brief 'Africa's Female Entrepreneurs - Towards Funding Success' by Aoife Hanley, Holger Görg, Cecilia Hornok and Charles Ackah, the authors examine the scale of the gender productivity gap in African countries and how finance constraints underpin this gap.
