Community based entrepreneurship development program have the potential to provide local entrepreneurs the required skills and network to grow their businesses. The Nepali government, various civil society actors, and donor agencies have many programs that focus on commercializing agriculture and providing training for local entrepreneurs. Such programs, though, cannot be stand-alone programs and must be integrated with local communities in order to be sustainable. The report examines possible business models for community-based entrepreneurship development programs, and recommendations based on the analysis of Naya Ghar and its pilot program in Tansen, Palpa.

The above report abstract is based on a rigorous research work under Daayitwa- Nepal Public Service Fellowship program by Daayitwa Fellows starting 2013 onwards. If you wish to access the full report, please email us at
