In a small workshop in Zambia’s capital Lusaka, abandoned pieces of metal and copper have become the main source of motivation behind the creativity of a group of women, who have been converting the scrap to jewelry and raking in profits.

  1. Hats off to these smart young women. Good job. These are the sort of initiatives that will add value to our raw material Copper, and enhance means of subsistence for Zambians. What’s needed now is to widen the market of these products. e.g. thru national and international Trade Show exhibitions and forming links. If we had credible and normal functioning Embassies abroad (I am not sure we do), they would have facilitated in forming business links for export sales for these smart young women.

    • This is what we need to see unlike those filthy things called UNZA honeys that were on display the other day. Perfect representation of Zambian women. Very clean looking too and healthy on top of ingenuity.

  2. EXCELLENT. THAT ALL I CAN SAY. THIS IS INNOVATION AT IT BEST. HOWEVER, GIRLS, ONE WORD OF ADVICE- DO NOT SIT BACK AND THINK THAT THE BEST YOU CAN OFFER TO ZAMBIA AND THE WORLD. PERIODICALLY, INDULGE IN BRAINSTORMING TO IMPROVE THE STANDARDS AND QUALITY OF YOUR PRODUCTS. THIS IS BECAUSE THAT’S HOW CRUEL THIS WORLD IS- IMPROVING EVERY TIME. IN COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY THIS IS CALLED MARKET AND PRODUCT RESEARCH. LEARN WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING IN THE SAME OR SIMILAR BUSINESS IN ORDER TO STRATEGISE. HOWEVER, CONGRATULATIONS AND KEEP IT UP. YOU ARE LIKE THE LADY WHO INVENTED CHARCOAL WITHOUT CUTTING A TREE BUT USING MAIZE COBS AND CASSAVA PASTE IN SOLWEZI.
