A. Nature of the business
Photocopying is widely known good business venture to engage especially when it is situated near or at an educational institution where massive information are dealt and needed. With the presence of photocopying machines, learning is facilitated and able to cope with the demand of time, providing the much needed services of reproducing reading materials for both students and faculty.
