Title: Agricultural social enterprises in the Philippines
An exploratory qualitative study of Agricultural Social Enterprises tapping into niche markets, while ensuring opportunities for the poor to become self-sufficient
Author: Hansen, Jacqueline
Abstract: In the developing world, poverty is a critical issue. While charity and interventions from NGOs are well intentioned, they often bring ‘here and now’ solutions rather than sustainable ones. At the same time, globalization affects the vulnerable poor. Social Enterprises have emerged as a response to the social and environmental crisis, with individuals and organizations providing innovative and sustainable solutions. The purpose of this thesis is to research how agricultural social enterprises in the Philippines can reach a niche market while ensuring opportunities for the poor to become self-sufficient. From a social constructivist perspective, using a hermeneutic analysis strategy, this thesis explores the concept of Social Enterprises, particularly in the context of the developing world.
