This brief summarizes outcomes reported by microenterprise clients regarding 2013. It also details the changes clients reported between the time they began working with a microenterprise program and the 2013 survey period, an interval averaging approximately one year.

The data show that microenterprise development organizations (MDOs) are serving entrepreneurs who traditionally lack access to business capital or assistance, as most are female, minority, and/or low-income. The findings also show strong business start-up rates, that businesses survive and grow over time, and half of firms provide employment for others in addition to the owner.
