Innovations in Microbusiness: Enhancing the Financial Security of Low-income Entrepreneurs
This report offers an overview of the emerging models of practice, including lessons learned from our partners and similar efforts by other organizations. We offer analysis of the scalability of these practices and their capacity to reach many more financially vulnerable entrepreneurs with the products and services they need most. We recommend actions that practitioners, funders and policymakers can take to support the growth of these models of practice. Finally, we identify areas of practice where more innovation is needed to ensure that low- and moderate-income (LMI) microbusiness owners have access to the resources that effectively contribute to improvements in financial security.
