Women as Entrepreneurs | Nigeria's No. 1

Women as Entrepreneurs | Nigeria's No. 1

Entrepreneurship may be the way for women to break out of corporate constraints in Nigeria and across the globe. By many measures, Nigerian women are surpassing men in the zeal and tenacity with which they pursue their dreams. Global data suggest women are leaving the workforce in droves in favor of being at home. This time, not to be a homemaker or a housewife, but as job-making entrepreneurs. Osaseye is providing this data from 2013 (chart above by prepaideconomy) 

Current data shows that African women are leading the pack in owning and running their own business. Nigeria ranks top of the continent with Zambia, Ghana, Malawi  and Uganda in the top five charts.

Angola, Botswana, USA, UK, Norway and France completes the list of top ten countries where women dominate as entrepreneurs.
