The objective of this chapter is to highlight the important relationship between microfinance institutions and women entrepreneurs in new venture creation. This chapter is proposed because women-empowerment is one of the crucial issues worldwide. In certain parts of the world, women are bound to customs, norms, beliefs, which are unique. These issues are found to promote social problems and hinder the economic contribution from women. In this direction, microfinance institutions are playing a vital role to promote women-empowerment through providing various opportunities to create new ventures. New venture creation increases the women social and economic empowerment through income generation. Various microfinance factors such as micro-credit, micro-saving, micro-insurance, and micro-training/skill development have a significant positive contribution to create new ventures. Finally, this chapter could be beneficial for microfinance institutes, state bank and government in making the strategies to enhance women-empowerment through new venture creation.
