The financial viability of BDS in Latin America and the Caribbean, by Lara Goldmark, 1999

    The paper draws from earlier research conducted by the author, including a survey of 182 business development services providers operating in the Latin America and Caribbean Region and ten case studies. During the course of the research, numerous interviews were conducted with entrepreneurs, practitioners, donors and academics, in an effort to exchange ideas and uncover innovative and sustainable programs operating in the region. In addition to the on-site institutional and market analyses conducted for each case study, secondhand information was gathered about numerous other business development service programs.
