Given that one-third of all Hispanic-owned businesses are owned by women, this chapter focuses on gender-related differences in business outcomes and self-employment earnings among Hispanic entrepreneurs. Hispanic female entrepreneurs appear to be at a relative disadvantage compared to their male counterparts with respect to a variety of outcomes (including sales, the likelihood of having paid-employees, the likelihood of being a microentrepreneur, and earnings). Nevertheless, through additional comparisons between foreign-born and U.S.-born entrepreneurs, the chapter points to the presence of stronger self-employment “pull” versus “push” conditions for female Hispanic natives than for immigrants. The chapter concludes with a discussion of policy implications.

Keywords:   Female Hispanic entrepreneurs, self-employed Hispanic women, gender and self-employment, Hispanic female-owned businesses, gender and earnings of Hispanics, gender and business outcomes
