The results demonstrated as follows: 1) Creation of distribution channels, it was found that the community enterprises should sell their products through exhibitions/booths, direct sales or network marketing, and modern channels such as convenience stores and supermarkets; 2) Creation of marketing activities, it was found that the enterprises should create awareness of their agricultural products through trade shows, seminars, conferences, and social media; 3) Creation of partnership network, it was found that the enterprises should apply the contractual agreement alliance, joint venture alliance, and equity alliance for building more partnership networks. Recommendation from the research results, the community enterprises must keep ongoing activities to exchange trade negotiations with trading partners. Simultaneously, the government agencies should help the community enterprises by raising income generation with a policy to support low-interest funding sources and find sustainable markets both inside and outside the country.
