How are microentrepreneurs combining self- and wage employment in today’s economic context? This issue of our Trendlines series uses data from FIELD’s microTracker client outcomes survey to analyze how “income patching” has been used by microenterprise program clients in recent years. The brief publication discusses topics such as characteristics of patchers and their business outcomes, including hours worked, changes in revenues, and the creation of paid work for others.
