The purpose of this paper is to make visible the
entrepreneurial role of women in the 19th century in Croatia
as well as to emphasize the diversity of women's experiences.
The analysis of the features of female entrepreneurship is

also enriched by adding citations from fictional works of
Croatian 19th century writers. The aim of the article is to
reconstruct the image of the female entrepreneur in Croatia,
compare it with its European counterparts and transpose this
image into the Croatian socio-cultural and economic context.

services sector. Using the effective survival strategies, they
quietly created their own individual space and economic
