Abstract:This document is an academic thesis research project that forms the final step for the MBA in Environmental and Energy Management offered by the Centre for Clean Technology and Environmental Policy (CSTM) and The Technology and Sustainable Development Group (TSD) at the University of Twente. It is also part of the EASE Program developed in Bolivia, Tanzania and Vietnam. Current literature related to the linkage of energy and poverty believe that there is not a sole and isolated factor for the up-take of modern energy, instead it is in relation with factors associated to the infrastructure, culture, geographical location, income levels and micro finance; in other words the livelihood framework of the beneficiary. In this context, whichever the approach is or findings are resulting from empirical observations, there is a general concern about the impact of enabling energy sources in Small and Micro Enterprises in rural areas. The present research examines and analyses these factors in the productive sector of rural areas, considering only the non-farming Small and Micro Enterprises (SMEs), and its relation with the up-take of electricity.
