|English||This handbook, which is especially aimed at rural farmers, is designed as a guide for setting up a small scale business. Although meant for persons with disabilities, it offers basic knowledge for successful business management and self-employment for all small farmers to help them in generating income and improving their quality of life. The handbook is divided into four parts.
The first part outlines the structure of the handbook, the second deals with the crucial aspect of the methodology used in training persons with disabilities, the third reviews basic steps in the preparation and setting up of a micro-enterprise and the fourth part uses examples of successful micro-entrepreneurs as models and trainers for people who wish to start their own micro-enterprise.
The handbook is illustrated with case studies of farmers with disabilities who have become successful micro-entrepreneurs.
