Based on primary and secondary data, this chapter provides description of each of the nine cases included in the sample for the study. These caselets give case-specific information and thus help to understand the contexts, specific to each case. These caselets are arranged in the order: non-profit charitable social enterprises; non-profit social enterprise sustainable with combined income of external funding and own earned income, or not-for-profit self-sustainable social enterprise, or hybrid social enterprise; for-profit social enterprises. Finally, important descriptions about the cases (social entrepreneurs) and social enterprises are summarised into two separate tables.
