A recently launched firm, Success Series Group, whose chief aim is to link Malawian business associates with markets in China and Dubai says Malawi can only hit it big in business if players take up the challenge of competing on global markets.
CEO of the group, Sam Silumbu, 25, who is also studying Civil Engineering at Xinyu University told Nyasa Times in an exclusive interview that Malawians in business, especially the youth must “think beyond the confines of the country’s borders.”
He said his firm is currently supplying “all kinds of electronics” and “exposing customers” to Dubai and China markets.
“A customer can even import a single memory card, a flash disk, computer or even a phone at the most affordable prices no other firm would beat in Malawi,” he said.
According to Silumbu, the customer must first tell their agents in the cities of Mzuzu, Lilongwe and Blantyre or watsapp their head office on+8613426670084.
But, he said, their overall aim was to let customers buy goods at wholesale prices and thus pay less.
“For example if a customer imports an HTC one M9, they will pay K419 000 and get a free Microsoft Nokia Lumia 520, a 32 GB HP flash and K4 000 worth of airtime (Airtel, TNM or Access).
“But the same phone we’re offering for free is sold at K435 000. So that’s why we’re saying we’re the right choice,” boasted Silumbu.
He said all their good were “original.”
According to Silumbu, soon people will be able to order online and pay easily using TNM’s Mpamba and Airtel Money.
“We’ve engaged services of experts in ecommerce and Malawi experts from the ICT department of Mzuzu University to help us build our online market. We’re done with the Chinese experts and Mzuni experts will commence their part in August this year,” he said.
Malawi is an agro-based economy with most of her forex earned through tobacco exports. But, recently, with the drop in tobacco sales on the global largely because of anti-smoking campaigns, the country is diversifying into several other alternatives including industry and trade.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
