Over the past months, it has been great to see so many people get creative and develop micro-businesses producing or making products on the island. Many of these micro-businesses started from an idea or passion and developed by selling products to family and friends, onto selling to the community and hopefully continue to develop into businesses which help keep money locally, generate employment, sell wholesale or open retail stores, develop a local food and product industry to assist in tourism growth and maybe one day, one day even export products off the island. It’s quite a potential journey many local entrepreneurs have started on, one with many hurdles, challenges, highs and lows.
As these micro-businesses take their first steps, they need our support to be able to take their next steps. An island with more locally made, grown, produced products can be a more sustainable one, which in the long run will bring economic benefits to the whole business community.
