Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

A Small Business

Nyaweta is a small marketing shopping centre near home where every business is carried out in small scale. Most people in that village do exchange various commondities among themselves in order to run their life effectively. The business maintained the same graph without any change in their exchange of goods and services. A Man named Clinntone Meah came into that village for his own survey and to know and compare the energies of the goods and services in that small scale market. He found the surplus in that business/market was constant without any profit. He decided tointroduce a new method of market. Most people benefited from that new method and people gained much compared to previous methods of marketing. That community improved further and the market was made larger.


  • The organization most involved in what happened: CLINNTONE MEAH
