Should people migrate from small towns to bigger cities for opportunities or create and develop their own franchisee in their towns ??

Most of the students or workers , in search of bettter opportunties migrate from smaller towns , they live in , to bigger cities for earning more.
If they stop migrating to bigger cities , the populaiton would be evenly spread across the cities / towns in that country and hence there could be more chances of faster economic growth of that nation.
Right education , innovation of products in all sectors and penetration of internet usage will be boosters for growth in economy and per capita income.

Retail business in india is one of the best examples which has been sucessful because of their presence in small towns - where majority of the population is present.

Please share about the story of smaller towns in your country.
