Social Enterprise Definition from SENS: A business that operates with an idea that the profits earned by selling products or services serve to achieve a clear social mission. It means that earned funds do not serve to increase the assets of individuals - but are invested in socially useful purposes, such as hiring people who have difficulties in finding a job, social and medical services, education, environmental protection and cultural activities in the community.

Social Entrepreneurs play the role of change agents in the social sector by:  Adopting a mission to create and sustain social value (not just private value)  Recognizing and relentlessly pursuing new opportunities to serve that mission  Engaging in a process of continuous innovation, adaptation and learning

Social Entrepreneurs play the role of change agents in the social sector by:  Acting boldly without being limited by resources currently in hand  Exhibiting heightened accountability to the constituencies served and for the outcomes created

Social Enterprise Definition from House Bill No. 6085: MAGNA CARTA for SOCIAL ENTERPRISES Social Enterprises refer to organizations engaged in providing goods and services that are directly related to its mission of improving social well-being. -It generates profits or surplus with due regard to social and environmental costs, and makes a pro-active contribution to social and environmental problems. PRIMARY Stakeholders/Beneficiaries: Marginalized Sector of Society

How will the Bill help the Social Enterprise Sector? Provision of accessible non-collateralized loans thru special credit windows with a Guarantee Fund Pool Comprehensive insurance system to reduce vulnerability to climate change/calamities Resources for comprehensive capacity development for SEs and poor as partners Proactive SE market development program promoting principles of fair trade

How will the Bill help the Social Enterprise Sector? R&D on strategic economic subsectors, appropriate technologies and innovations to democratize access of poor to quality basic social services Preferential treatment in government procurement including coverage of performance bonds Tax exemptions and tax breaks Cash incentives (i.e. at least 25% of minimum wage for social enterprises employing PWDs)
