Abstract [en]

In Sweden, many new companies started each year and more women become self-employed. With this pursued the debate about women that generally has more difficult getting access to credit, information and bank loans. Several studies show that lenders prefer to lend to larger and more established companies. This study is a qualitative survey about five female self-employed in Östersund active in the service industry, who was asked how they financed their first three years. About these women used the services of non-traditional financing, i.e. bootstrapping that as an alternative to minimize and eliminate the required resources and costs. There are five methods of bootstrapping; detaining, owner financed, minimized, relationship-oriented and contribution-oriented. The results of the study showed that the women used bootstrapping in large extent and that they did not have any financing problems. Furthermore, the study shows that the women prefer external capital today, and they have a positive vision for the future of the company.
