Sri Lankan women have recently taken an active role in the business sector of the country. However, they are seemed competing on an equal footing with the men, in the business field. But still the number of female entrepreneurs is relatively low. However, the situation has now changed and there is evidence to prove that Sri Lankan women significantly contribute in economic aspect of the country. Especially in the business sector in Sri Lanka, shown significant progress over the men during the last few decades. A large number of women have started their own businesses and most of them have been able to meet with success.  But, they have very lack of knowledge on entrepreneurship, marketing, technical and financial management. And also, they have faced with financial barriers to start / expand their business.

Hence NEDA implement women entrepreneurship development program at regional level in all districts with supporting of Development Officers.  It includes improving entrepreneurs’ knowledge & skills, marketing & technology assistance and financial assistance.
