There’s a misconception that small businesses are overshadowed by big businesses when it comes to driving the economy. The truth? Small businesses punch way above their weight, creating positive ripple effects far beyond their local community. In this episode, we’ll follow a storefront bakery in Washington, D.C., focused on the betterment of military veterans, their spouses, and their caretakers. We also talk to a woman in the northern farmlands of Rwanda, who built her own brick-making business, all thanks to a nonprofit seeking to guide young entrepreneurs out of poverty.
