Community Based Enterprise Models
DA facilitates creation of group and individual community based enterprise models amongst the poor; to boost local economic development. These enterprises have special relevance in backward areas; where people’s capacities are poor, and conventional businesses fail to provide jobs or the business environment is not conducive for operations. The value chain development approach is often applied to these enterprises; to economically empower backward communities. The current portfolio of community enterprises includes agri-processing, vermicomposting, green building materials and service based enterprises; fulfilling the needs of the community.
