This video is part of our “FOUND Middle” series, which focuses on some of the many businesses and intermediaries that make up the “missing middle.” A growing number of organizations are working together through the ANDE network to find and support these businesses – which in turn create jobs, wealth, and goods and services for local communities. Over the coming months we’ll continue to share stories with you of what we’ve “found” in the missing middle. Check out other videos here.
