    The labor market in rural areas faces a new challenge, of to increase employment through entrepreneurship development and transfer of labour from subsistence agriculture sectors to non-agricultural competitive sectors under the conditions of the existence of a high percentage of workforce aging, inactive, discouraged from finding a job, with low level of education, training, entrepreneurial culture and income. The paper presents a SWOT analysis of rural workforce market and the framework of regulations regarding the development of social entrepreneurship opportunities as a modern form adapted for solving social problems. It is important to developing another type of business towards to solve social problems facing rural environment, an equitable redistribution of income, reinvest profits to create new jobs and not to accumulate it in order to deepen the economic and social inequalities. Based on a statistical investigation on the main problems faced by entrepreneurs from rural area and internationally good practices are mentioned several orientation directions of social business models in the context of rural area.
