Rural social biz innovations are highlighted her in an effort to draw attention to business models and social and environmental oriented enterprises that are working in and around rural areas around the world. What is more, because of the broad category of "rural," many of these example span sectors. For instance, there's REwiRE, a social venture that started in Indonesia but wants to expand to other countries around the world. It focuses on renewable energy financing.
