In the last decade, entrepreneurship has become one of the main lines of interest between academics and professionals. The economic crisis has weakened the economic system of Western countries, and the need to create a strong business fabric based on the figure of the entrepreneur. But this fact evidenced in the developed economies has already been revealed in other parts of the planet, where the economies are in development phase or incipient development. The economic and social conditions of some territories promote an entrepreneurial activity, which on a small scale, is favoring the sustainable development of the territory (Ortmans, 2015). It is particularly the characteristics of the context where this entrepreneurial activity takes place, which also makes it present some features that make it special, and with it, of great study interest. Developed on a small scale, promoted especially by women, and focused especially in the fashion sector, this entrepreneurial activity is also characterized by its sustainable character, not only when seeking economic and social development, but also taking advantage of a coherent natural resources of the territory. The African continent is a clear example of this. As with other points in Asia and Latin America, entrepreneurship in Africa is considered to mean that the African population can foster country development and alleviate poverty (Ortmans, 2015). As it happens, sub-Saharan Africa contains the highest number of individuals engaged in nascent entrepreneurship (14.1%) or early stage entrepreneurial activity (26%) in the world Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, 2015. Also fascinating is the recognition that Africa leads the world with the highest participation rates of women in early stage entrepreneurial activity (24.6%), with the next highest occurring in Latin America (16.1%) Despite steady growth in gross domestic product (GDP) and an increase in entrepreneurship rates, overall GDP by country in Africa remains among the lowest relative to other regions of the world (World Bank, 2013) In this regard, a number of questions arise concerning entrepreneurial activity in Africa. 1) What is the importance of female entrepreneurship in entrepreneurship? 2) What motivates the African woman to undertake? 3) Which sectors of activity are most relevant in female entrepreneurship? 4) Is sustainability a strategic element for the success of women's entrepreneurship in Africa?
