The study concentrated on the impact of small entrepreneurship on rural poor women in Bangladesh. It was executed by considering their participation in income generating activities to improved livelihood assets. The study comprised of a sample of 300 women household entrepreneurs selected randomly. Practically, tabular and statistical techniques were used to analyze the results. The results indicated that the impact on poultry and livestock rearing, fishing, homestead gardening was positive. Accordingly, distribution of household expenditure revealed both farm and non-farm entrepreneurs spent more money on food, cloth, health care, and housing than they did before involvement in entrepreneurship. Of concern also, most of the respondent household had brought positive changes in different types of livelihood assets, such as financial capital, natural capital, physical capital, human capital, and social capital. The study employed the sustainable livelihood analysis framework as an analytical tool to identify ways to advance the livelihood of small entrepreneurs. However, lack of institutional support, and poor government facilities are identified as constraints to developed women entrepreneurship.
