Many studies state that social economy enterprises are the formulas responsible for generating a business network in rural or depressed areas, bringing about a process of economic development in those areas. One of the possibilities that has often been considered for implementing economic development policies is the possibility of making greater use of cooperativism. However, we should not consider cooperative enterprises to be the only element of transformation; other formulas of social economy can also play an important role. This article presents social economy enterprises, on the whole, as development agents, analysing the consequences that changes in development policy have on the social economy and studying the distinctive features of these enterprises that make them the driving force behind development.
