Female Entrepreneurs Are Making Business Boom [Infographic]

More female entrepreneurs are starting their own businesses in 2013 than ever, and the aggressive growth trend for women-owned businesses that started in 1997 shows no signs of slowing down.

Today, women-owned businesses can be found in every industry and the statistics are truly amazing, as you can see in the infographic below from CreditDonkey. However, there are still many challenges that female entrepreneurs face, some of which are more prevalent for businesses owned by women than businesses owned by men.
