In an attempt to improve the livelihoods of rural households, different approaches to rural development have been adopted in different economies. The most broadly adopted approaches have been technocratic, the radical and the reformist approach. These approaches are unique in that they aim at achieving different rural developmental objectives. Despite different approaches that are been used in the literature, in this paper, central to rural community development is the communal-based enterprises approach with an implicit research objective of assessing how Basotho Enterprises Development Corporation can contribute in enhancing livelihood development and thus sustaining the community at large. The results show that enthusiasm is high in all villages as a majority of interviewees showed a positive initiative capacity in which the only barrier pulling them back is a pushing force. This barrier can be justified as the majority of people have no knowledge of Basotho Enterprises Development Corporation and the services they provide.
