Business Malawi reports Women Empowerment Network (WEN) has secured free export services to Dubai from Air Cargo Limited, a subsidiary of the national flag-carrier Air Malawi.
WEN is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that empowers rural people, especially farmers in an effort to make them self-reliant and improve food production.
The network recently decided to embark on exporting vegetables to other countries as one way of creating markets
for farmers. “We saw potential in the farmers but they lacked market opportunities to sell their produce.
“Most of them were also complaining about lack of resources to help them improve their farming business that is when we came in with the sole aim of making sure that the farmers have all necessary materials,” Wezi Ngalamira, WEN’s national coordinator told Business Malawi.
Apart from creating markets through exports, “Our organization is also helping farmers to have good shelter.”
