Success Group linking Malawians to Dubai and Chinese markets
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 :
U should have made enough research bra, the said Nokia 520 for “free” which u are claiming that costs MK435,000.00 is actually Mk52,000.00 here in Malawi brand new and the HTC one is trading at MK180,000.00, it’s a pitty maybe u haven’t been to Malawi lately. U can do better than that, good innovation though.
I am not surprised that my brother in the background will not be surprised with my not being surprised with the preceding comments. This is something idiosyncratic to Malawians. Instead of commending this brother of mine for his patriotism to the nation, we are busy castigating and blasting him for his innovative skills. How many of us think of doing something to the nation when we go abroad? We even forget to assist our own biological parents and brothers. Keep it rolling my brother. You are trying……Do not be swayed from your course by stupid comments from stupid people like… Read more »
Well. I personally know the chap. Just worried about his academic well being because what he is getting into is demanding.
Studying Civil Engineering and will at the same time be opersting commerce on behalf of Malawians? The same demanding Civil Engineering I know???
I am not sure I would trust such a gu
Just be very careful with this chap. China has too many fake items flooded on the market and I don’t think this chap has the capacity to assist though he is there.
The correct help should come from Malawi Embassy Commercial Attaché, not zinazi.
