‘’ We have to profit from this opportunity; it is not everyday that we are trained and qualified and told what is good or bad… in situations regarding that small handmade product that we are fabricating at home… like jelly, bread, cheese, curd or whatever it is that we make,  often at the interior of the country, where most of these small and micro businesses are located
