Abstract: The field of entrepreneurship is fast becoming a means of livelihood among our Pacific island women. These women have been motivated intrinsically or extrinsically through various factors that contribute to their success and satisfaction. Women entrepreneurs in Fiji operate and manage businesses that are usually small and medium in size (SMEs). These businesses have a total asset or annual turnover of less than $500,000 and employ 6 to 50 employees. Small businesses such as second hand clothing shops, boutique shops, cafeterias, handicraft shops, hair salons, beauty parlors, tour and travel business to name a few are usually owned and managed by women. With tourism businesses dominated by male and foreign investors in Fiji, women continue to face challenges and lack motivation to start a business in this sector.
