Steps and ideas to buying good yet inexpensive materials in the trade are:

  • Buying each material should always be in liters.
  • Students can buy as low as 5liters, check the cost of production and use this as basis for profit margin. At the same time talk to more people about the products and make his or her sales. Feedback is also important for someone starting the business.
  • Students can buy the materials in the major
  • After the training students should be able to plan, start and run their own business.
  • Students will become entrepreneurial thinkers by exposing them to real life learning experiences where they will be required to think, take risk, manage circumstances and incidentally learn from the outcome.
