Community-based businesses (CBBs) are important in developing rural areas. This project evaluated the feasibility of CBB’s in Northern India’ 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. Recommendations are made for two prospective CBB’s: producing soap made from soapnuts, and creating hand woven products.
We have two short and two long-term
recommendations that can promote the
development of CBBs in the Kamand Valley.
