Abstract: The literature concerning social entrepreneurship is relatively nascent. This paper will provide a brief review of moral and spiritual capital, and how they affect the development and possible efficacy of social entrepreneurs. These two forms of capital should be considered similar to other forms of capital such as human, intellectual, social and financial capital. The paper will also highlight the important function that Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) of all religions perform to benefit society.

Keywords: social entrepreneurs; social entrepreneurship; FBO; faith-based organisations; moral capital; spiritual capital; personal development; religion.
