Mostly, household chores & family responsibilities posed the major challenges for them. But now with the blessings of widespread use of social media, they can easily start an online business. This research paper will present how women entrepreneurs are using various social media platforms such as Facebook & twitter accounts for their online startup. Besides, this paper will analyze the in-depth interview results that have been conducted on ten online women entrepreneurs from various groups that will show the key challenges they are facing today.
