Entrepreneur of the day …
I’m sitting in my small office. In walks a young man carrying a bag. He shows me the products he is selling. I havent taken my lunch and it is well past 2pm. I’m attracted by his products. It is groundnuts, well packaged and the colour is also very attractive. The price is also reasonable for the amount of each packet. I decide to buy 2 packets that my children will love as part of gifts I send them from time to time.
The young man is none but Thomas Nyitati. He has formed a group of young people. They buy groundnuts from farmers. They grade them and prepare them nicely before packaging. Once packaged, they take them out to find buyers.
This is one example in which youths of the country could very much utilise their time and energy in ways that are paying both to them and their country. In so doing they will very much help build the economy of this developing country. Promoting locally produced products should be given a priority. We should support such young entrepreneurs. Hongera Thomas na wenzako.
