These two SE's involve marginal women farmers who cultivated the herbs and small coconut farmers who produce the virgin coconut oil used in EcoHerbs. The product is marketed by self-employed vendors and advertised through the probably oldest marketing strategy - word of mouth - and the most modern method - the internet.
