Entrepreneurship is a hard subject to deal with Pakistan because the societal trends motivated people for public sector/government jobs. This is one of the reasons of the people prefer to join government service as compared to private or entrepreneurial activities. This study is conducted to find out the possible challenges and opportunities for female entrepreneurs in Lahore. The data has been collected (in 2014) by questionnaire. Convenience and snowball sampling techniques have been used to select the sample for the study. The sample size of two hundred has been taken for this purpose. In statistical analysis binary logistic regression is applied. The result shows that every age group has opportunities to continue the business, but in case of marital status, challenges are more to continue the business. On the other hand, educated female entrepreneurs, mostly are facing challenges to continue the business except diploma and small business courses holders.
