This brief summarizes business-related outcomes reported by microenterprise clients in 2014. It also details the changes clients reported between the time they began working with a microenterprise program and the 2014 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 minority and/or low-income; many are female entrepreneurs. The findings also show strong business start-up rates, that businesses survive and grow over time, and just over half of the firms provide employment for others in addition to the owner.
