This forum focuses on social enterprises as a way for microenterprise programs to increase their sustainability. The experience of one program — Mountain BizWorks which created a artisans’ gallery in 2002 — is used as a case study. The publication details how and why the enterprise was launched, identifies some of the challenges encountered, and explains some of the critical lessons learned through the experience.
