Capital Intentions

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter analyzes the importance of financial management, focusing on how female proprietors face the challenges of complex financial transactions on a daily basis. It argues that compared to men proprietors, women were especially poorly prepared as financial managers. The financial-management skills required in the operation of a business are best mastered through training and experience, and this is the sort of background that most female proprietors lacked.
