Marketing of the products

The discussion was made with local cooperative named Lekhbesi Social Entrepreneur women cooperative Ltd. for marketing of the vegetables.
They have agreed to collect the vegetable and contact with traders to send the product in the city but there is not enough production so far therefore the farmers sell the product in local market. The cooperative itself shows their commitment to organise the interaction workshop involving the entire stakeholder including farmers and traders to establish proper marketing mechanism.
