As a result, women entrepreneurs have been seen as important construct in entrepreneurial development. However, more important is the understanding of the relationship between the fac\ors that motivate women into entrepreneurship and their choice of business ownership.

Model of correlation coefficient was used to analyze the data from the primary source through the instrument of questionnaire. The findings of the survey showed that there is s ignificant relationship between entrepreneurial motivation and women choice of business ownership. Recommendations for policy making were offered based on these findings.
