Projects in Ethiopia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia helped people with disabilities get jobs, start their own business, and escape poverty. These projects benefit people with different kinds of disabilities. The case stories in this report explain how the right legislation and policies, business skills training, and support services can help. This report includes two stories of Deaf entrepreneurs who started their own business.

The case stories may be helpful for policy makers, decision makers, program managers, and international development professionals. Professionals can use these stories to decide how to promote disability inclusion in society, employment, and entrepreneurship.
