GFMM: Tell me if you have any problems or challenges with this business in Bangladesh.
Mr. Gan: Here are some problems we had to face at the beginning of the business. The challenge was to face them. At that time Bangladesh was a low middle income country, so there was a shortage of financial capital for the customers here. They are looking for the lowest priced machinery in the market. The biggest problem was, they decided without properly scrutinizing the ten products in the market. As a result, in many cases they had to fall. In business, many people can sell their products with using highlighted words. A proper buyer will have to make the right decision and decide which one is more profitable for him. Now, of course, there is no such challenge for our regular customer.
