Abstract

Jane Njaramba explored the experiences of adult African migrant and refugee women involved in entrepreneurship in tropical, regional North Queensland. She found that they created many diverse and productive business ventures with typically few resources, contributing to the economic growth of regional north Queensland, fulfilling the Australian policy of developing regional and remote areas.
