Abstract

Besides access to credit, the presence of consulting services and formation of clusters play an important role in microenterprises performance. I analyze the impact of consulting services and clustering on microenterprises' profits and assets in Egypt and Turkey, using a unique dataset on medium and small enterprises in both countries. I find that use of consulting services, and clustering, positively affect the profits and assets of microenterprises.
