Starting from making clothing to designing textiles to handicrafts to poultry farming to fishery and pottery, there is no shortage of craftwork when it comes to the villages. Over the years, many companies and organizations have come forward to help these village industries so that their work and developments are at least renowned in the urban areas and they get a greater value for what they are doing.
