Voices of Women Entrepreneurs in Kenya"Voices of Women Entrepreneurs in Kenya" profiles successful women business owners as role models and offers a unique perspective, grounded in experience, on the obstacles and constraints they have had to overcome. It explores the reasons for differences in performance of women entrepreneurs through a series of conversation with businesswomen. Based on interviews and focus group discussions, carried out in Nairobi, Mombasa, and Wote in November 2005 and March 2006, the report starts with an overview of the women's business community in Kenya, followed by an analysis of women's access to property, land and finance. Chapters four, five, and six discuss women's access to justice, access to the formal sector, and the impact of international trade. The report concludes by looking at networking and advocacy as venues for taking the needed reforms forward.
