  • C. S. McKean (1989). Women's ventures (Kumarian Press), 102-120
  • Abstract: This chapter contrasts three approaches to training and technical assistance for microenterprises and assesses the effectiveness of each approach and the degree to which women benefit. The first section analyzes training and technical assistance that are offered to entrepreneurs who borrow from microenterprise loan programs either as individuals or as members of solidarity groups. The second section looks at the experience of projects that use training and technical assistance to stimulate the creation of new, informal sector enterprises. The third focuses on industry and trade-based initiatives that provide alternatives to individual, enterprise-specific training and technical assistance programs. -from Author
