Social Enterprise Landscape in Morocco

The ecosystem for social entrepreneurship grew substantially in the five years between this 2019 survey and the first study in 2014. Moroccan social enterprises are predominantly led by young, highly educated entrepreneurs from urban areas who are primarily seeking to create employment opportunities and improve local communities. The challenges they face include access to finance and lack of expert business support, and the report recommends increasing the provision of technical, financial, and policy support to social entrepreneurs and devising strategies to facilitate access to wider markets.
