Mentoring is the Key to Business Success
Markets, whether large or small, keep communities thriving. But conflicts, disasters, and a lack of infrastructure can prevent people from conducting the daily transactions on which all growth and progress depend. Around the world, Mercy Corps discovers why commerce is stuck.
