The entrepreneurs have good attitude towards the business. The entrepreneurs face financial difficulties due to high collateral requirements from the financial institutions. The plants do not have adequate machineries and modern technology. They are not good in distributing their products to their respective customers. The enterprises have good relationship with customers. Hence there is a scope for developing and expanding their business. There is an interruption in electric power supply which hinders the enterprises performance. Therefore, entrepreneurs should intend to take basic trainings and/or formal education so as to be more competent in the business world. Moreover, both entrepreneurs and government should make effort to ensure electric power supply continuously.
