    There are an estimated 400 million persons with disabilities in Asia and the Pacific. A vast majority of them live in rural areas and are small farmers dependent on the agricultural sector for livelihood security. This practical handbook identifies income-generating opportunities for setting up small-scale businesses so that they may become self-reliant while remaining in their community. It is based on an innovative entrepreneurship training programme developed by FAO, enabling small farmers wi th disabilities to overcome social, cultural and psychological hurdles to becoming successful, self-employed rural entrepreneurs. It uses a field-tested methodology for promotion of micro-enterprises by small farmers by mobilizing successful, local small farmers to become trainers of their peers. The handbook takes the user through all the steps to be considered when a disabled person decides to start a small enterprise, from the difficulties and advantages involved and training methodologies to preparation and setting up of the micro-enterprise.
