OPEN is delighted to be working with an exceptional group or rural Small and Growing Businesses in its pilot year.  These entrepreneurs are profiled below.

OPEN has adopted a definition of Small and Growing Businesses (SGBs) developed by the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE). ANDE define SGBs as "commercially viable businesses with five to 250 employees that have significant potential, and ambition, for growth. Typically, SGBs seek growth capital from $20,000 to $2 million".

Product or service
:Milk processing, export quality rice processing, fish culture

Growth opportunity
: Most of the milk processing factories are based in the North of Bangladesh. This means great market opportunities for me in Noakhali region, therefore I want to expand my factory.

Social impact if growth opportunity is released
: The price of milk will be less, because it is produced and processed locally. And I create local employment by enlarging the factory.
