The paper discussed the socioeconomic status of the women entrepreneurs of Ema keithel of Manipur with the use of the modified Kappuswamy socioeconomic scale 2019. The socioeconomic condition is determined by three important indicators: the income of the head of the family; the occupation of the head of the family; and lastly, the educational qualification of the head of the family. In the present study, 600 women entrepreneurs from Ema keithel were considered for study. A random sampling of the respondents was used for the survey. Based on the reference of Kappuswamy SES Feb (CPI 328) 2021, the analysis was done. It shows that women entrepreneurs are from single-headed households, and many of them live below the poverty line. The data shows that illiterate and unskilled households with unemployment problems in the state forced these women to struggle for a living in the market as street vendors.
