Jacana Business Empowerment News

Hello subscriber subscriber,

Jacana selected the following three entrepreneurs from the second batch of trainees. By chance they all need help in marketing. Two of them want to brand their product and the other one wants a logo and billboard. These three entrepreneurs have proven that they are eager to learn and have perseverance. They deserve our support and will be individually guided by Jacana in expanding their business.



Xavier is a shopkeeper and freezits (ice lollies) producer in Lusaka. At the moment he is selling groceries, fish and freezits. He wants to expand his business into a wholesale and he wants to brand his freezits. 

Do you know somebody who can support Xavier in branding his freezits then please share this link "http://jacana.help/project/xavier"  with him or her.

Why donate?

The selected entrepreneurs achieved great things by their own means and without appropriate education. They show resilience and have enormous hidden capacities which Jacana wants to reveal.

They successfully completed Jacana's training in business, financial and marketing planning. We all know how inspiring a conference or a short training can be, but the next morning we are absorbed again by our day-to-day activities.

Therefore Jacana wants to guide each of them in their individual needs and make sure that the improvements are imbedded in the day-to-day running of the company. That costs time and a little bit of money. Every small amount is more than welcome.


Jacana wants to thank “Protestants Steunfonds” for their donation.
