RAMIREZ URQUIDY, Martin; TEXIS FLORES, Michelle  and  AGUILAR BARCELO, José Gabriel. The role of human capital and learning in Mexican microenterprises: The experience of the state of Baja California. Estud. front [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.29, pp.207-245. ISSN 2395-9134.

This work aims at understanding the structure of human capital and learning in low value added microenterprises of Baja California and to determine the role of such factors in microenterprise performance, in order to establish a diagnosis on their contribution and get some public policy implications for the sector. The results confirm the importance of human capital on the performance of these businesses, since there is a relationship between human capital and performance as measured in different ways. The results also account for the heterogeneity in the distribution of micro-enterprise human capital among locations, sectors, types of business and sex.

Keywords : microenterprise; human capital; learning; entrepeneurship; employment.
