A lack of access to financial institutions also hinders the ability for entrepreneurs in countries like India to engage in neither new business ventures, inhibiting economic growth and often, the sources and consequences of entrepreneurial activities neither financially nor environmentally sustainable. This paper deals with the concept of “sustainable micro entrepreneurship” is neither formal, nor derived, but rather a development process combining the three aspects of microfinance, entrepreneurship and sustainability. It refers to the specific practice of “Social conscious-driven entrepreneurship” perpetuated by a sustainable access to credit and without bearing undesirable externalities on people or environment. Sustainable micro entrepreneurship is a small-scale, self-sustaining active development process initiated by the poor to help themselves break free from their poverty.

Microfinance is one of the approaches used to tackle poverty. There are many debates over whether it is an effective scheme or not. An example of microfinance is seen being implemented by Grameen Bank (GB); it targets the rural areas of Bangladesh where women are the main beneficiary. Thus, the purpose of this research is to answer this question, what are the effects of GB’s microfinance initiative on women’s social capital in the rural areas of Bangladesh since its establishment in 1976? The information that will be analysed relating to the case study (women in the rural areas of Bangladesh) in this paper comes mainly from a study by Lamia Karim.
It is revealed that the GB’s scheme has not only negatively affected women’s social capital but also the community fabric has been seen to disintegrate. As a result of the program, many women have been seeking their self-interest and have become more individualistic. Indeed, due to the high rate of GB’s interest and other factors, many women (the beneficiaries) have become poorer and are suffering. This paper provides evidence that the GB microfinance scheme is not the right approach to tackle poverty. The review will show that encouraging strong social capital can be an asset for poverty reduction, thus, when implementing any poverty reduction initiative this should be considered.

Entrepreneurship does offer a few solutions, but it won't fix the vast majority of problems that lead to networks breaking down. They have become well-known for their contributions to society and for creating new industries and occupations. Entrepreneurs are seen as national assets because they cultivate, inspire, and create as many opportunities as they can for the populace. Great businesspeople have the power to alter the way we live, work, and think. Youth have work opportunities thanks to entrepreneurship. It would be accurate to say that they have a favourable effect on society's general development as well as economic progress.

This is a straightforward but powerful marketing tactic that small firms frequently ignore. You could believe that these initiatives are only for huge companies with a sizable consumer base. That isn't necessarily true, though. Since it is one of the finest ways to create leads, small businesses stand to benefit far more from such an endeavour. Consider it from the standpoint of the users. Would you make a purchase from a company you've never heard of based solely on an advertisement or promotion? No, I think. But would you at least give it a try if someone you know and trust suggested it? Most people would say "yes" to this. Referral marketing has tremendous power and beauty, which is why.

It is impossible to overstate the significance of money in business. With very few exceptions, having money on hand is essential for starting a business. Once the company starts to make money, some of that money can be put back into the company to draw in additional clients and increase earnings. Business funds are not lost on initiatives with a low rate of return thanks to careful planning and financial management. Early on in the planning and fundraising phases of business growth, entrepreneurs could find themselves in a catch-22 situation. They need to persuade potential investors that their business plan is viable and will make enough money to pay them back. According to MarketResearch.com, this persuasion typically calls for statistics regarding the possible consumer base and competition. Even just doing the study costs money. Without an assurance that the results will be positive, business owners may decide to conduct market research using their own money or borrow money from friends and family.
