For our last full day in the field, we traveled up the rocky mountain road to Sous Pinot, the same road we took even farther the day before to Hyacinthe. We were pleased to encounter new school buildings and were able to use its classrooms.  We presented to a class of 37 men and women, with the help of Mitch our excellent interpreter from Haiti, information on how to successfully form and grow a small business enterprise. Our discussion began around generating income and profit through proper pricing, promotion product improvements and place/location. The discussion also included resources for funding, the importance of understanding customer expectations , proper borrowing principles and brainstorming possible product and service categories. The group expressed appreciation for the knowledge and ideas we shared. Their participation and attention was impressive. I’m optimistic that many will make good use of the business information we shared in all three villages this week.
