Metal fabricator, Moses Mawele
Moses Mawele is a hard working welder who has inspired many other Zambians to escape poverty. Now he wants to expand his welding business and he is very happy that Jacana guides him in pump production.
Moses is a welder by profession. He is married and has five children.
Moses started his Metal fabrication company years ago called Stance Construction. The company is located in town area of Chipata and he has two people working for him. Moses fabricates gates, doors, window frames, oxcarts and many other items.
At this moment he wants to expand his business by making rope pumps and sell them to his community.
Moses attended the business and the technical training in March 2017
