Women entrepreneurship is not considerably high in India comparing with the other developing and developed countries. In spite of several measures, the women entrepreneurship is lacking behind, because there are lot of factors such as social, economic, behavioral, psychological, familial, social environment, the type of enterprise and other supporting system were not integrated with them properly. All these factors account for entrepreneurial activity, particularly emancipating entrepreneurial base. This made an importance to understand the inter-relating factors for entrepreneurial success exclusively in the case of women entrepreneurs in textile trading enterprises. This paper presents the results of a study conducted to assess the interrelationships between various social, economic and environmental factors with the success of women entrepreneurs among Self Help Group members who involved in different kinds of textile trading in Erode and Tirupur cities of Tamil Nadu in India. A sample of 40 women (20 from Erode and 20 from Tirupur) is selected from the population under the study using purposive sampling technique. This study reveals that there is a significant association between some of the background factors and psycho entrepreneurial variables.
