Social enterprise, even though can operate as a non-profit, usually has income from selling their products or services. They help to grow and develop local economy and collectively contribute to the prosperity of the nation as well as their beneficiaries.
Social Enterprise produce jobs, which helps people to get financial stability. The employees could actually be the beneficiaries! When a social enterprise focuses on hiring only people from a specific underprivileged group or with disability, they give them hope and means to live.
Customers of Social Enterprises are people who buy their products or services. They are like “donors”, but on top of getting a nice feeling that they helped someone, they also get something useful in return. People are more likely to pay for a service or a product when they know that it allows them to support a cause, improve someone’s life or environment. There’s a benefit for all!
