Women entrepreneurs significantly contribute to economic growth and poverty reduction worldwide. While the number of women operating their businesses is increasing globally, they continue to face huge obstacles, such as a lack of capital, strict social constraints, and limited time and skill, that stunt the growth of their businesses. A group of women, who wanted to bridge this gap in business growth for women,bonded together for a common purpose and formed the "Association of Lady Entrepreneurs" (ALEAP).
The Association of Lady Entrepreneurs of India (ALEAP) was established on 18th December 1993 on the principles of democracy and volunteerism for women to establish their businesses. Registered under Section- 25 of the Companies Act, ALEAP exemplifies commitment to quality and dedication to service.

The rise of women's entrepreneurship is a positive development for the economy and the women who embrace the opportunity and freedom to establish their businesses. Over time, more women are pursuing entrepreneurship to enjoy a better lifestyle. Women need to undergo quality training and expertise to achieve their ambitions, and ALEAP has initiatedseveral developmental activities to accomplish these objectives and goals.
