Our Approach
3BL in Context

• Poverty is multi-dimensional; needs to


be understood in its context and
complexities
• Most imminent form of poverty is
economic poverty
• Other forms of poverty goes beyond
income levels such as gender inequality,
environmental injustice, political
repression, forced migration,
landlessness, malnutrition, illiteracy and
Framing 3BL as Rights

Role:MSMEs stimulate local economic


development, increases social equity and

country's MSME productivity is low
Our Scenario

• Further challenged by technology, capital,


and more vulnerable to external shocks in a
globalizing world

sustainable development and poverty
alleviation requires improvements in
both micro and macro levels
