I was in Hyderbad recently to try and build up some business links for the MESH team there
which will allow us to make our presence felt more in the city and open more opportunities for sales. It was a good visit. We had meetings with government officials, a politician, a small group of philanthropic ladies who run a charitable school and who will bring us business. We also met a new vibrant young entrepreneur who runs her own exclusive tour company in the city.
We are also trying hard to build up links with schools and corporate houses so as to be able to put up sales stalls at their open days and annual bazaars. We have some good leads with the companies but schools proved most difficult.
The local staff will continue to sell from the shop in the park and follow-up on all our new links.
