  • OVERCOMING THE LIABILITY OF POORNESS: SOCIAL CAPITAL RESOURCES OF FEMALE
           ENTREPRENEURS IN INDIA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: SMITA K. TRIVEDI, MONICA M. SHARIF
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 02, June 2022.
      This paper seeks to use social capital theory to explain how impoverished women may find success and lift themselves out of poverty. The research addresses three unique, significant areas of study. First, by reviewing relevant theory and research on livelihood creation and social networks, a new lens for examining social capital in the context of poverty is provided. Second, a model is tested examining the role of an entrepreneur’s social capital resources on the development of their own livelihood creation and the consequential changes in the entrepreneur’s lifestyle. The research finds that weak social network ties are positively related to livelihood creation, with counter-intuitive results regarding lifestyle changes in response to the changes in livelihood creation. Third, the above model is applied to female entrepreneurs, utilizing a sample of women associated with SEWA (Self-Employed Women’s Association), a network broker and business incubator trade union working in impoverished communities in and around Ahmedabad, Gujarat, in India.

  • EVALUATING THE EFFECT OF MOBILE MONEY ON FIRM PRODUCTIVITY IN AFRICA: A
           COMPARISON OF THE FORMAL AND INFORMAL SECTORS

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: CHRISTIAN KABENGELE, JAKOB ROESSLING
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 02, June 2022.
      We explore the relationship between firms’ mobile money use and their productivity using a sample of 994 formal and 1,499 informal, predominantly micro-, small- and medium firms from Zambia, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Our findings reveal a positive and statistically significant relationship between mobile money use and labor productivity for informal firms. The effect also appears to be stronger for female-led than for male-led informal firms, suggesting that mobile money could be a valuable tool to promote gender equity in Africa’s informal sector. In contrast, for formal firms, the effect vanishes once all relevant controls are accounted for. Thus, for formal firms, mobile money may be insufficient to overcome the impediments of their business environments in Africa. Further, a complementary fsQCA reveals configurations of conditions that appear important for informal firms to truly benefit from the productivity enhancing potential of mobile money. The combination of founders’ education, firms’ location, their sector and their use of traditional bank accounts appear particularly crucial. The fsQCA findings give additional nuance to our regression results. Overall, our findings suggest that firms more exposed to transaction costs benefit more from mobile money.

           CHILDPRENEUR ACTIVITIES, ADULT ENTREPRENEURIAL INTENTIONS AND INDUSTRY
           PREFERENCE

      Authors: GLORIA L. SWEIDA, CYNTHIA L. SHERMAN, CHRISTINE M. WEINKAUFF DURANSO, ROBYN A. BERKLEY
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 02, June 2022.
      Female entrepreneurs have moved into all industry sectors in recent years; yet most start businesses in only a few of these sectors, such as education and healthcare. We argue this is, at least in part, because gender role stereotypes permeate self-concepts and behaviors very early in life. Therefore, when children engage in entrepreneurial activities (which we term ‘childpreneurship’), they choose activities that match their gender role (much like adults), thereby reinforcing gender roles that later influence their adult entrepreneurial and occupational choices. We examine the mediating force of gendered childpreneur activities on the relationship between gender and adult entrepreneurial industry preference. We also examine the moderating effect of the quantity of childpreneur activities on the relationship between gender and entrepreneurial intention. A cross-sectional survey study of over 900 U.S. college students and working adults reveals that men and women report a stronger preference to start a business in gender-congruent industries. For men, engagement in male-typed childpreneur activities partially mediates this relationship. In general, the number of childpreneur activities is positively related to adult entrepreneurial intentions. More specifically, gender-neutral childpreneur activities are positively associated with women’s adult entrepreneurial intentions. Our study expands knowledge of distal factors influencing entrepreneurial intention and industry preference.

  • CONSTRAINED POTENTIAL: A CHARACTERIZATION OF MEXICAN MICROENTERPRISES

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: ANA NEGRETE
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 02, June 2022.
      Firm-level data spanning from 1994 to 2012 is used to investigate the apparent stagnation of Mexican microenterprises. The existence and nature of constraints are studied by estimating the empirical probability of a business’s success. A performance index is defined based on firm levels of capital stock and monthly profits. The predicted values are used to classify all microenterprises into one of three categories: upper, middle, or lower segment. Overall, the study identifies evidence of constrained productivity and capital misallocation, as well as the plausibility of cost-effective interventions. Specifically, microenterprises from the middle segment face substantial external constraints and their total share increased from 16 to 22 percent over time. The monthly marginal returns average 30 percent across lower-segment firms and 1 percent across those in the upper segment. Finally, the differences in monthly profits among segments are explored using the Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition method.

  • EFFICIENCY DIVERGENCE BETWEEN FORMAL AND INFORMAL MICROENTERPRISES DURING
           THE TRADE LIBERALIZATION OF MEXICO

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: ANTONIO BAEZ-MORALES, ANA NEGRETE
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 02, June 2022.
      Efficiency is a crucial determinant of economic development, especially among microenterprises, which tend to be the prevalent economic units. This article estimates the efficiency of both formal and informal microenterprises in Mexico in the context of NAFTA (North American Free Trade). The Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition method is used to explain the factors behind the observed differences. Additionally, a detailed analysis with a decomposition by quantiles is provided. Formal microenterprises are found to be more efficient than their informal counterparts, with a narrow difference in 1994 widening by 2012. At the same time, the efficiency level declined for both groups of microenterprises over time. Two main conclusions are derived. First, microenterprise size distribution and the characteristics of the private sector influence the success of trade liberalization policies. Second, the overall decrease in efficiency, regardless of whether microenterprises are formal or informal, supports recent studies suggesting that economic, institutional and social constraints limit firm performance.

  • COAGGLOMERATION AND NEW ECONOMIC ACTIVITY: EVIDENCE FROM FORMAL AND
           INFORMAL MANUFACTURING FIRMS

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: AASHEERWAD DWIVEDI, AMARESH DUBEY
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 02, June 2022.
      For much of the twentieth century the predominant belief was that informal entrepreneurship would disappear with higher rates of economic growth. However, the informal sector has persisted in most countries and has grown in some, which calls for a re-evaluation of the existing notions of informal entrepreneurship. An important strand of literature in the form of structuralist and neo-liberal theory provides an alternative explanation. We use the coagglomeration framework to understand the relevance of these theories in the case of India. Using firm-level data, we use the Coagglomeration index to calculate the tendency of formal and informal firms to locate in the same region. We also calculate three types of linkages between formal and informal sectors: buyer-supplier, labor and technology. Further, we use panel data to estimate the relative importance of these linkages in explaining coagglomeration between formal and informal manufacturing firms. We find that coagglomeration in India is driven by buyer-supplier linkage. We then use count data models to determine the effect of coagglomeration and agglomeration measures on new firm birth in the formal and informal sector. We find that coagglomeration positively affects new firm birth in the formal sector but not in the informal sector. The evidence provided in the paper supports the structuralist theory.

      Authors: MARCELO CALLE, ADAM WATSON, JOHN LAI, WENDELL A. PORTER
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 02, June 2022.
      In many developed economies, the struggle to survive finds many small farms disappearing. Diversification is recognized as an important strategy for sustaining farms of this scale, addressing food security issues and creating a more resilient food system. This study aims to analyze farmers’ intentions to diversify into new business opportunities and how opportunity alertness and risk-taking propensity affect their intentions. These relationships are examined using data collected from 166 small and medium-sized farmers in five regions within Florida. The results indicate that for small and medium-sized farmers, opportunity alertness and risk-taking propensity have a positive effect on diversification intentions across seven different types of activities. Implications are drawn for theory and practice.

  • RECOVERY PATHS AFTER CRISIS: RISK INTELLIGENCE AS
           ANTECEDENT OF ENTREPRENEURS’ RESILIENCE

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: PAOLA MAGNANO, MARCO PLATANIA, GIUSEPPE SANTISI
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      In recent years, markets have been hit by various crises, both economically and naturally. These shocks have highlighted how important it is for companies to be able to adapt with resilient behaviors. Entrepreneurs and their resilience capacity will play a very important role in the recovery process. Resilience is closely linked to other abilities such as risk intelligence; that is, the ability to look at uncertainty as an opportunity rather than a disadvantage or danger. The study assesses the relationship between these two constructs using a sample of entrepreneurs in the tourism sector within Italy. Analysis confirmed a relationship between subjective risk intelligence and resilience. These relations are explained by taking into consideration four aspects (imaginative capacity, problem-solving self-efficacy, attitude toward uncertainty and emotional stress management) included in risk intelligence, highlighting which of them contributed to explaining the three dimensions of the resilience construct (hardiness, resourcefulness and optimism).

      Authors: JOHN JAMES CATER, MARILYN YOUNG
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      Drawing on insights from the family business succession and mentoring literature ,we examined the preparation process for daughters as successors in family firms in the United States. In-depth interviews were conducted with eighteen daughters and their parent mentors (nine mothers and nine fathers) using a qualitative case study approach. We identified a reciprocal social exchange process between parent mentors who provided resources and daughters who acquired the knowledge to become successors in their family firms. Significant elements in the preparation process included: positive childhood experiences, choosing and earning a relevant college degree, the daughter’s autonomous decision to enter the family firm, guided on-the-job training, and counsel and advice to overcome the crucial issues of male gender bias and the burden of childcare responsibility. The significance is highlighted of differences that exist between mothers and fathers as mentors regarding understanding the daughters’ position in the firm and communication.

  • ANALYSIS OF THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC EFFECT OF MICROCREDIT ON
           MICRO-ENTREPRENEURS USING THE SELF-REPORTED PERCEPTION METHOD AND
           RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS

      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      Microcredit offers an innovative response to non-traditional financing and development needs for marginalized individuals. Here, impact assessment is very useful in that it helps to determine whether or not the objectives set at the onset are achieved and what can be done to correct the impediments to achieve better results. The paper analyzes the socio-economic effect of microcredit through the novel dual approach of self-reported perception and relationships with others. The data were gathered in collaboration with the Fonds Mauricie in November, 2019. Apart from the improvement in the financial indicators of micro-enterprises, the results show that microcredit has enhanced micro-entrepreneurs’ living conditions and family situation at rates of 88 and 91 percent, respectively. Regarding morale, 88 percent of micro-entrepreneurs report feeling better and optimistic about the future, and 92 percent report better relationships with others. In particular, the socio-economic effect of microcredit is determined by a better family situation, better living conditions and better financial situation and business income. These results imply that microfinance institutions must extend their financing to all segments of the population, especially the most vulnerable people such as immigrants and indigenous peoples.

      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of the paper is to formulate empirical specification models to examine whether financial development stimulates economic growth and encourages formalization. Cross-country data analysis of 140 sample countries during the period from 2000 to 2018 were utilized, together with new indexes of financial development. The income decomposition method and the two-step estimation approach, together with the multiple linear regression with interactions effect, were employed as empirical methods. It was found that financial development can lower informal self-employment through economic growth. Financial development also contributes to economic growth. Therefore, development of financial markets and financial institutions should be an alternative policy to control informal employment.

  • THE EFFECT OF EFFECTUATION PRINCIPLES ON OPPORTUNITY EXPLOITATION BY
           ENTREPRENEURS IN A DEVELOPING ECONOMY

      Authors: FRIDA PACHO
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      This study aims to explore the direct effect of effectual means (who I am, who I know, what I have) on the successful exploitation of opportunity by new ventures. Resource acquisition and strategy implementation ability are employed as indicators of opportunity exploitation. We also examine the mediating role of particular, effectual principles on the relationship between effectual means and opportunity exploitation. A total of 462 owners of early-stage small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Tanzania were surveyed. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) and hierarchical regression were used to test a set of hypotheses. The results demonstrate that effectual means positively affected both resource acquisition ability and strategy implementation ability. Mediation effects differed based on the type of effectual means and different elements comprising opportunity exploitation. Implications are drawn from the results for theory and practice.
