INDIA / India Projects Program
Community-based businesses (CBBs) are important in developing rural areas. This project evaluated the feasibility of CBB’s in Northern India’s Kamand Valley. Through interviews with fifty-seven respondents, we obtained information on resources, interest in participating in a CBB, and products purchased in the market. Our findings indicated potential for the development of a CBB in the Kamand Valley, and an assortment of products. We made recommendations for two prospective CBB’s: producing soap made from soapnuts, and creating handwoven products.
