Bushiri said “the company should not be confused with the Church, the company has its own mission statement, goals and vision.”

Guest speaker during the launch was Bishop Benedicto Kananza who the Deputy Chief Executive officer for Ned bank Malawi.

“People need to know new habits of managing finances, I salute Rich Mind for the timely initiative, we believe this would help many people. “He said
