Starting a business can be challenging, but it can also bring great social and financial rewards. This edition of Footsteps is on the topic of entrepreneurship. It covers practical questions such as how to come up with a great business idea (pages 6–7), how to manage your finances (pages 12–13 and 16) and how to write a business plan (pages 18–19).
It also explores challenging issues such as barriers to women’s economic empowerment (page 10) and how to protect livelihoods from disasters (pages 20–21). And throughout, we feature inspiring case studies of entrepreneurs from Kenya, Guatemala, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Brazil, Nepal and Pakistan.
