Abstract: Majority of women entrepreneurs fight with problems in obtaining financial resources. The present research aims to examine how entrepreneurial orientation can be new factors to create the financial capability for women entrepreneurs. Using a sample of 55 women entrepreneurs in the culinary sector the results showed that entrepreneurial orientation will create the financial capability of women entrepreneurs in getting access to financial supports. The results indicate that the ability to manage the finance of women entrepreneurs will increase an economic-wellbeing, and these become even more important during an economic downturn when additional pressures are placed on the household's finances.
