Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out in three district of Andhra Pradesh viz., Chittoor (from Rayalaseema region), East Godavari (from Coastal region) and Srikakulam (from North Coastal region) during 2016-18. The main objective of the study was to analyse the constraints in operating the enterprises by the SHG women entrepreneurs and suggestions to overcome them. The study highlights that, the prominent constraints expressed by women entrepreneurs, about personal and socio-psychological constraints, ‘Male dominance’; In case of financial constraints, ‘Inadequacy SHG loan amounts’; In case of technological constraints, ‘Lack of entrepreneurial training opportunities’; Regarding marketing constraints, ‘Stiff competition’, In case of infrastructure constraints, ‘Inadequate space & building’ were perceived as the major constraints by the majority of the women entrepreneurs. When all these problems addressed properly by the policy makers, then the women entrepreneurs bring laurels to their family, to the SHG, to the village and to the nation. The major suggestions given by majority of women entrepreneurs were ‘Support from the family members to share the house hold activities’, ‘Organizing training programmes to develop entrepreneurial capabilities’, ‘Increase in SHG loan amounts’ and ‘Establishing women co-operative societies to eliminate middle men’.
