In Kenya, women entrepreneurs depend on men’s decisions

Closely observing the entire supply chain of horticultural products that end up at City Market shows that men own the farms, women tend the farms, men are the wholesalers and women are the vendors at the tail end of the chain.
More often than not, women entrepreneurs live in disadvantaged neighbourhoods and have to be home early enough for fear of being raped by criminals.
The practice and orientation of entrepreneurship is a product of our socio-economic environment that is underpinned by deep-rooted norms of behaviour.
