Abstract [en]

From a gender perspective the presented process-study problematizes formal and informal institutional possibilities and obstacles, including gender contracts, which women as business owners, entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs face in rural communities as they - partly in co-operation with other entrepreneurs, official channels and non-governmetal organizations (NGOs) - promote livelihood and local development by starting and developing businesses within locally produced food in Hälsingland, Gävleborg County, northern Sweden.
