Why is Microenterprise Development Important?

Microenterprises or Micro-Businesses are those that have fewer than 5 employees. That’s over 80% of the businesses that operate in Inland Southern California. Successful micro-businesses will create jobs, generate tax revenue, supply needed goods and services and improve the local economy.
