DP 2017-04 (Revised): Strengthening Social Enterprises for Inclusive Growth: Philippines

Social enterprises have been emerging globally as alternative organizations to achieve inclusive and sustainable growth. Success stories of social enterprises have shown that multiple bottom lines can be achieved; that firms can be vehicles for profit and other moral imperatives. In the Philippines, a resurgence of social enterprises has also been observed. However, the current policy environment in the country is yet unresponsive to the growth of social enterprises. There is a need to understand better the context of social enterprise operations through more rigorous research.
