North Country Micro-Enterprise Initiative Presented in South Africa

A small business initiative in St Lawrence County was a finalist in a world chamber of commerce competition.

The Cooperative was launched two years ago with the support of Senator Hillary Clinton.

Representatives for the St Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce went to South Africa for the competition. They didn't win the award, but they brought back stories. Gregory Warner spoke with the head of the ebay project, Ruby Moore, after her return.
