“Together with the Project, our view of how we work has completely changed: we have changed our cultivation technology, and we have become very focused on selling our products. My family could grow produce but could not sell it. Training in the Project helped to see new opportunities for product sales and new approaches to marketing your business. From now on, we see prospects for the development of our business and we see where we may have not worked enough, all this helps a lot to develop our business of growing environmentally friendly products.
