Can Social Enterprises Really Solve Poverty? - Forbes

Can Social Enterprises Really Solve Poverty? - Forbes:

The landscape of social enterprise is strewn with these tales of struggle and frustration. And yet, only a few solutions have achieved impressive scale and by doing so have been able to improve the lives of millions of people.
What’s different about the solutions that scaled is that they resulted from the powerful interplay of social enterprises and industry facilitators. From smallholder tea in Kenya, to microfinance in India, to solar energy in Bangladesh, we have seen that while innovative enterprises are clearly the engine of change, external facilitators can help them succeed and scale by working alongside them to tackle the tough barriers that stand in the way.
