The aim of this study is to get detailed and contextual information so qualitative methods are the most appropriate form of inquiry, therefore, we intend to use narrative method to collect data as we believe that narrative theory will provide us with a model that will serve to deepen our understanding of complex issues that face women in the Kurdish society. The broad areas of inquiry will be identified through examination of the literature and then refined in a focus group with the student and staff at universities. This will provide the framework for narrative interviews. This method of data collection is relevant to the research concerns and matches the authors’ academic backgrounds and professional skills as counselors. The interviews will be taped and then transcribed and coded using computer assisted software. Particular attention will be given to the participant from women about the ways they have claimed and re-claimed power in their lives, and their contribution to economic and social life. The theoretical assumptions of narrative psychological Counseling are based on a thorough understanding of the importance of cultural struggling and identify their battles of the individual. This primarily qualitative longitudinal study proposes to examine the role of entrepreneurial networks both as a dependent and an independent variable in entrepreneurial activity. The research paradigm adopted would be phenomenological and the research approach would be inductive. The research strategy adopted would be case study based and the primary data collection method would be semi-structured interviews. A control group could be used to compare and contrast against the entrepreneurial group. The study may also contain a secondary, quantitative element such as network structural mapping.
