Risks and challenges

There are a lot of risks taken when running a small business in a third world country without large suppliers and trying to deliver products to the US in a timely, safe, sufficient manner. There are sometimes factors with both the culture and efficiency that could delay orders later than we are hoping that are out of our control. However, we have been working non stop at developing our brand and team for many months to prepare for this launch and are confident we have the organization and means to produce quality pieces in this amount of time. If there should be any delay or issues with the products, we will have complete open communication with our supporters.
