First business ventures

William has come up trumps! He and his friend Juan Carlos spent the afternoon making the pots we had commissioned and they brought them round. We paid them the amount they asked for – Q50 for ten items (about £4)


We are going to paint them with some unique new designs in collaboration with artistic talent of the village, hopefully eventually to get a production line going so people can start to generate a proper income.

Our second business venture is selling mangoes. They are dropping off the tree in our garden, waking us up in the night as they fall onto our metal table outside. We are going to sell them for Q5 (about 50p) a bag in the surf camp. Here are our first bags, ready to sell. Fingers crossed!
