This study analysed KlLPS 8th wave data to explore the effects of
Self-Employment of Women in Poverty, in terms of economical and
non-economical effects. Research results demonstrated that major
economical effects were age(-), certificate of qualification(+), married(+),
employee(+), restaurant business(+). Secondly, it is demonstrated that,
in terms of non-economical effects, women in poverty who had health
condition(-), divorce/ living separately/bereaved(+) had higher expectation
to overcome this situation through Start Business.
The evaluations of Self-Employment of women in Poverty vary.
One evaluation is that Self-Employment is not only to be non-poverty
through income increase, but also to raise independence. Another
evaluation is that start business has no empowerment effect as well as
no income increase effect. Based on the research analysis, this study
could confirm that women in poverty could increase income and had
the will to overcome difficulties and to be better through Self-Employment.
In accordance, supports for poverty women should be not only economical
supports like income increase strategy, but also social-psychological
approach(support) that can make them have will and vision for better
future. With those supports, Self-Employment can secure economic
and non-economic effects.
