Determinant factors of women's entrepreneurial success of Togo
Today, the role of women has evolved in society, from housewives to entrepreneurs, in the same way as men, and contributes to economies in terms of job creation and economic growth (Kelley, Bosma and Amoros, 2010). However, we will focus on the place of women in entrepreneurship in Togo.
The objective of this study is to explain the entrepreneurial success of Togolese women on the basis of the environmental dimension.
Thus, the question that arises is to know: What are the key factors for the success of female entrepreneurship in Togo? In order to answer this question, we conducted a qualitative study with semi-structured interviews with 12 women entrepreneurs in Lomé working in the formal sectors.
Through a content analysis, our results show that family support, support structures, government action, and socio-cultural factors have a positive effect on the success of Togolese women entrepreneurs. However, financial resources are a key factor of success, but access remains difficult for Togolese women.
Keywords: Women entrepreneurs, Success factor, Togo.
