As Dr. Deborah Gill writes: “The virtuous woman of Proverbs is known by the nature of her work. In her own businesses, the text describes her in roles of buyer, purchasing agent, and production manager. She is a manufacturer, designer, supplier, and importer. She manages people, invests in real estate, trades, and develops agriculture. In a period of history much different from our own, this Bible woman is an entrepreneur. She organizes and operates her own businesses and takes on greater than normal financial risk in order to do so.”
