Jobs for millions

More than 90% of enterprises in developing countries are small businesses and provide jobs for millions of people. The Dharavi slum, Mumbai’s largest, has 4,000 recycling units employing 30,000 rag pickers; 6,000 tons of rubbish are sorted in the slum every day.

Small enterprises tend to be highly innovative, make excellent use of scarce capital and skills, and provide a range of services and goods both to their communities and to large corporations.
