Studies on small-scale forest entrepreneurship are rare in the DRC. Yet, small-scale forest enterprises create jobs and income for many households in the country. They take different legal forms and cover different sectors of activity. They are often individual. They represent an enormous potential for development and income generation for the Congolese population in an economic context where salaried employment is rare. However, they are developing with difficulty, facing multiple constraints that limit their profitability and sustainability. These constraints can be grouped into four categories: constraints related to product quality and the market, constraints related to material and financial resources, administrative and legal constraints, and finally, problems of corporate governance. Beyond these important challenges, many opportunities exist and should be seized by small forest enterprises for their sustainable development.
