It is really not easy to speak on the economic activities of women for most adult women (that is, women over 18) are married and therefore qualified housewives, and according to INS1 these are inactive persons or dependants, going by the current formula for identifying contributory services. As for income, while it is easy to know the salaries of civil servants, it is very difficult to determine the exact income of private sector economic agents and especially the income of members of non-Governmental organizations and associations, including those involved in economic activities. The presentation will be based on the following points:1. The concepts of income-generating economic activities and what makes a successful leader; 2. The objectives of the economic activities of Congolese women; 3. The diverse economic activities of Congolese women; 4. Difficulties encountered by women in carrying out their economic activities; and 5. The results achieved.
