The Corporate Responsibility Initiative has cooperated with Business Fights Poverty, CARE, UKAid, SAB Miller and Citi on a guide for companies to strengthen micro-enterprises market systems. The report highlights the key challenges micro-enterprises face and the transformational opportunity to take a collaborative, market system approach to enabling micro-enterprises to thrive within corporate value chains. Based on a series of multi-stakeholder  consultations and case study research, the guide focuses on five success factors that are critical for strengthening micro-enterprise market systems through collaboration.
