    Kate Jackson United Kingdom I like this course, it's mostly about the basics of what you need to set up a business instead of talking about the more informational stuff like what branding/graphics/sourcing customers ect business needs. 2015-01-02 13:01:43

    Solomon Simon Kenya I have always had passion for Agribusiness. Having a large farm of over 20 acres but all submerged in a swamp, denies me the chance to grow water melons, chillies and tomatoes in large scale for both local markets and international markets. 2014-07-15 08:07:18
