Community enterprises (CEs) are a part of the informal sector and comprise micro and small enterprises (MSEs) which play important roles in the social and economic development of developing countries. They have paid relatively little attention to the knowledge management (KM) field, even though they rely on knowledge, especially local wisdom, and experience and skills of their members in order to create products. KM should be addressed in order to strengthen their business. According to their characteristics, modern KM concepts can be applied in an appropriate manner to suit their environment and conditions. The strengths and weaknesses of their characteristics and organisational culture need to be investigated before KM implementation. This paper investigates a CE in Thailand – “Prae Pun” – as a representative case of CEs to identify strengths and constraints for KM in CEs.
