Abstract


Development of women and social inclusion has been a topic of interest for decades. Successive governments have been making
several attempts to address this adequately and enabling progress. Several women have embarked on venturing into not
business oriented enterprises but also social enterprises, in a way indicating the ability to contribute to economic development at
large. However, any business venture has its share of challenges at the time of setting up initial stages and while operating as an
ongoing entity. This paper analyses the challenges faced by women social entrepreneurs engaged in providing common services
as part of Akshaya Centres in Kerala. An ANOVA analysis is performed keeping the age as a variable and how these challenges
impact the women social entrepreneur during the initial and operation stage. The paper concludes with findings and suggestions.
