By mid 2019, with the preschool successfully operating, the difficulties of funding the annual operating budget continued to be a challenge for the village. So, after three meetings to discuss alternatives, including the principles of social enterprise, the village committee and the youth group presented a business plan to meet a local need. Their plan called for the purchase of a tractor and a trailer so they could initiate a business offering field preparation, transport, and road maintenance services in the local area. Their plan made sense. The leadership was persuasive. Looked like the market was there. We funded their plan in late 2019. They are scheduled to take delivery of their new tractor in January 2020.
