Increasing Self-Employment Earnings
In the countries in which the world's poor are concentrated, the great majority of working people are self-employed. As detailed in this chapter, a program to increase the returns to self-employment would involve policy actions in the following areas: design products to help raise the productivity of the self-employed; adopt a positive policy stance and avoid hassles; provide the poor in agriculture with more to work with; facilitate supplemental off-farm wage employment and self-employment; make capital available to the poor, especially through microfinance; build skills and business know-how; and stimulate micro-franchising.
