Cyclone Freddy Survivors Challenged on Entrepreneurship

The Black Indigenous Business Network of Malawi a grouping of Malawian owned enterprises has challenged the cyclone Freddy Survivors to develop a spirit of entrepreneurship.

President for the association, Ketie Kamwangala, made the call on Wednesday after distributing relief items to about 88 flood survivors at Mbulumbudzi primary school camp in Chiradzulu. 

Among the distributed items include cooking oil, sugar and soya pieces besides a startup capital of K200, 000 provided to the victims to start up small businesses in two groups.

"Starting a business is not about having a huge capital but the desire. It basically means that with as little as K10 000, one should be able to start up a business. It is the heart and the desire that matters”, said Kamwangala.

Maurine Kandulo who hails from Kasambwe Village, Group Village Headman Mpama in Chiradzulu said despite majority of them currently being their respective homes, they are still facing challenges among them food and accommodation.

Majority of the cyclone Freddy survivors which hit about 12 districts of the country early this year have been relocated in their various homes where they still require humanitarian assistance.

Currently government is in the process of identifying resettlement land to build houses for the victims whose houses were completely demolished.
