In the third module, which contained theoretical and pratical part, participants were introduced with the term of business plan, its purpose and how important it is for the business of each household.

In practical part, we conducted a workshop with each participant and developed a mini business plan for their households through which we defined goals, activities, necessary resources, expansion of existing business capacities, and the way in which they can present their offers to potential users. On this way, we gained an insight into market opportunities for each individual participant.

A total of 46 beneficiaries, which expressed interest to work in the field of rural tourism, were participated in education.

Interviewers visited potential beneficiaries, surveyed them and mapped their capacities in order to promote them to BH citizens in diaspora through the World Federation of Diaspora BiH, as well as to domestic and international institutions through the web site

Users will be associated in organization in order to make legal and organizational operations much easier.
