The HP Microenterprise Development Program is designed to support nonprofit microenterprise development agencies in the U.S. that serve clients in low-income communities.

We seek to advance the use of technology in microenterprise development programs in order to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of microenterprises in underserved communities. HP’s investments focus not only on providing technology access to microenterprises, but also on training microenterprises on how to use technology to build and grow their business.

The total value of the 2007 grant award is more than $57,000. In addition, recipients will receive a travel grant to participate in a conference to share learnings, address common challenges and provide information that will serve to educate and inform the microenterprise development industry.

We are proud to recognize the 2007 HP Microenterprise Development Program grant recipients.
