As the number of people losing their jobs keep on increasing due to the impact of Covid-19 in Malawi, young Blantyre based business man by the name of Masutso Stone has challenged the youths to start small and Medium Enterprise (SME’s) to help themselves.

Stone who produces traditionally made wine said it is important for the youths to use the talents and skills they have by doing something in this tough economic times where jobs are rarely found.

“Many youth thinks that you need big capital to start business. I totally disagree with this kind of thinking because l started with less than ten thousand kwacha, but through hard work and resilience l have managed to build a house, expand my business and do many things that l cannot mention,” he said.

The Ndirande based young business man who is popularly known as DRC, also urged the youths to put God first in their endeavors and never lose hope if things go against their wish but rather look where things went wrong and forge ahead saying that that is how life is all about.

Stone further said they ought to know that there is no easy ride in life but this should not scare them to do things that can transform their lives.

He also have some businesses in Chikwawa and Nsanje where he has made a number of developments.

On the same development Minister of Labor Ken Kandodo and his deputy Vera Kamtukule recently  engaged SME’S that are affiliated to Indigenous Business Association of Malawi (IBAM) to hear the challenges they face and how best government can address them so as to make sure that the one million job creation by the Tonse Alliance government becomes a reality.
