To achieve Rwanda’s dream to become a middle-income country by 2020, small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have e greater role to play. Rwanda is a land locked resource-limited and overpopulated country with around 10.500.000 people and a growth rate of 3.1% (NISR, 2012). As women constitute more than half of the population (52%), whatever country development plan should consider women involvement, otherwise it can be a kind of underutilization of resources. So, if women are not actively engaged in entrepreneurship, the job creation capacity of half the country’s population will be lost.
