About this book

Intended for small-scale entrepreneurs in developing countries, project leaders and administrators involved in small enterprise development and economists, this book addresses three fundamental issues: how to find financial support, how to improve products and how to access markets. It offers answers to the social, political and governmental obstacles facing small enterprise in developing countries. Examples cited include entrepreneurs who, through innovative use of appropriate technology, created their own economic foundations, produced surplus goods and moved their products into previously closed markets.


The magic of the marketplace; the biases of and experience with supply-side interventions; introducing maize mills in Cameroon; introducing the production of glazed pottery in rural villages in Tanzania; introducing the production of improved jikos in Kenya; the commercialization of small-scale production of pigs in the Dominican Republic; providing poor Tamak farmers in Indonesia access to a lucrative market.
