Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative supporting small business for poor entrepreneurs. This time with the Coronavirus pandemic still ravaging the villages with no solution in sight, businesses have been affected badly and the most problematic are those with little capital and unable to fend for the downturn in the economy and the purchasing power of the local population. Even with this we focused our attention to providing value added to local products with high potential for the local market by engaging in product processing and then enlisting local resellers of the products. We are starting with the processing of dragon fruits into vinegar and wine with the knowledge that this has the potential for increasing the income of small scale growers and processors.
Hoping for your continuing support to this initiative.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your kindness and generosity in supporting our initiative for small business and poor entrepreneurs. We are happy to report that our project is doing well with local supporters also chipping-in especially during this time with the Coronavirus pandemic when assistance to entrepreneurs is very much needed. During this time we focused our effort to the promotion of delectable, highly-nutritious crops such as dragon fruits which has the potential for value adding via processing. We aim to expand this project and organize a small cooperative where farmers will be able to process their raw crops. Aside from dragon fruits which we intend to process into wine and candies, we also aim to produce tea from ginger and turmeric. Hoping for your continuing support and assistance to this endeavour. This reporting period we are able to assist 120 small farmers and entrepreneurs expand their farm production with the aim of processing their products in about 2-3 months time.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project supporting small business for poor entrepreneurs. We are happy to report that the entrepreneurs that we were able to support are now providing value added to their products. Most of these are centered on the processing of fresh fruits and vegetables in order to extend the shelf-life as well as to improve marketing. One of the agricultural ventures that we are promoting is the raising of ducks for eggs and meat and this reporting period we succeeded in producing salted eggs from duck eggs. Salted egg is a delicacy here and commands high price besides it last long. Five of our entrepreneurs are engaged in this business. Hoping for your continuing support.
