You highlight an important connection between youth entrepreneurship and the fight against inactivity. The implicit point here is that the private sector is simply unable to create enough jobs for new entrants in the labor market. or employ the massive contingent of youth in working age who are NEETs (Not in Education, Not in Employment and Not in Training). So entrepreneurship is one of the alternatives which various stakeholders are beginning to support through various mechanisms. Your recommendations to include non financial ( business development services) in addition to better access to finance is very critical and I would add it should also address young people working in the informal sector sector which constitute the largest pool of the working poor (in several regions).
