Economic Participation of Businesswomen in Sudan: Progress, Problems and Prospects

"This research investigates the possible problems businesswomen still face in Sudan, notwithstanding the government’s policies to promote businesswomen. These problems include the business environment and infrastructure, access to finance, notorious government bureaucracy on business entry, and high and multiple taxes and charges. The study also looks into the education and experience background of participating businesswomen, their personal characteristics and motivations, and society’s attitudes to women going into business. This study is mainly policy oriented, but also aims at narrowing the literature gap that exists on the subject in Sudan."
