|2||Fancy Items||3000 beneficiaries|
|3||Banana fibre crafts||2000 beneficiaries|
|4||Handicraft items||1500 beneficiaries|
|5||Terracotta Jewellery||2000 beneficiaries|
As the marketing of the above item is a task for the artisans and therefore, Kadco will open marketing centres at its HO and Regional Offices and sell the products of the artisans under Kadco brand name.
kadco already has a showroom for the marketing of products from Artisans at Central regional office (Eranakulam). Products from Grihastha can be marketed as a separate section here.
