  • Unfavorable political system: This discourages individual’s private ownership of property and this limits creativity of an individual hence entrepreneurial motivation is affected e.g. at times government policy discourages individual’s initiative.
  • Unfavorable economic environment: this is described in terms of policy, unregulated lending activities which may be rigid and hence discouraging entrepreneurial motivation.
