The study has emphasized the need for support in terms of entrepreneurial skills, timely and affordable credit, technology adoption, quality production, and a competitive edge to stay ahead in the market. It involved using digital marketing, online platforms, and other digital resources to increase visibility, engagement and customer base, the study said.
