          Rebecka Fleischman was just trying to use her thanksgiving leftovers. But after that first experiment, word spread quickly about her all-natural mixes. Soon Rebecka and her husband Allen decided to give Soup ‘n More a go, converting the living room into a commercial kitchen. But they quickly outgrew the space. And that’s when they turned to REAP for help. The Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP) is a small business development program unlike any other. REAP was started by the Center for Rural Affairs in 1990 to meet the needs of self-employed rural people. Since then, it has grown to be Nebraska’s largest supporter of microenterprise, assisting entrepreneurs often when no other lending capital is available. Find out more at http://www.cfra.org/reap

                ne billion people worldwide live in urban slums; yet at the same time, cities are hubs of entrepreneurship, innovation, and growth. A powerful strategy called Urban Value Chain Development (UVCD) harnesses the resources of today’s cities to develop vibrant local economies while enabling the poor to compete within them. By simultaneously increasing the competiveness of local industries and giving the poor access to higher value markets, this approach generates sustainable growth and reduces urban poverty. Program Manager Yibin Chu sat down with Nicardo Neil of the Value Initiative's Jamaica partner, the Competitiveness Company, to discuss the project and its impact.
