Integrating Microenterprises into Markets

The Case of EDA’s Leather Subsector Project in India

Over the past several years, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), donors, and development practitioners have been grappling with methods to develop sustainable business service markets that will help small enterprises increase their profits and integrate on beneficial terms into local, regional, and global markets.

The focus of this case study is the decision-making process that led EDA from pages of information on the leather subsector and supply and demand for related business development services (BDS) to identifying and supporting the creation of service business models that help leather microentrepreneurs access new markets and enhance incomes and profits.
