Development of rural enterprises will ensure creation of wealth, affordability of better services at the bottom of the pyramid, particularly for families living below poverty line (BPL) and lead towards an inclusive growth. When such enterprises are rooted in local resources and leverage on traditional knowledge and skills, they can also ensure better resource management as well as success of the enterprise. When these enterprises initiatives are evolved alongwith a favourable social environment, then such enterprises not only become success, they also become sustainable.
