Online Primary Health Care, Godfrey Siluchali

The below video shows how E-Health provider Godfrey did before collaboration with Jacana (March 2016).

Former director of E-Learning platform software developing company “Koepel Educatieve Software BV“, Rik assists Godfrey.


On 16 March 2017 Godfrey wrote this evaluation.

Here is my view on the help I got from Jacana Zambia for the past 1 year I was under your mentor ship.

1. Human Resource

I appreciated the human resource services I received over the one year period. Rik was very resourceful to me in terms of physically helping me out especially when l was shooting my advert videos and also editing my marketing messages including other works for grant applications, position papers and the website information. His and Dinies input was so valuable.

Aside this, there was also the part of education which l think is the best approach to empowerment entrepreneurs. I together with about 6 of my friends had a chance to learn about how to successfully expand a business, writing a business plan, marketing and financial management and this knowledge is still beneficial to me even now. I learnt how to write a powerful business plan on 6 pages and a summary business plan on a single page.

2.  Marketing

During the last 1 year my online business being a start up needed a lot of experienced strategies to break ground and enter the market. I received advice on what approaches works and those which would not or don’t work in the line of my business. I was fortunate in that Rik had good experience in online businesses and so provided me with valuable advice on how to meet with the various challenges. I was also introduced to a book “Learning Lean” which I still use as my Bible in business. At least I am able to significantly reduce on losses by using iterative approaches in doing business.

3. Technical Support

This part was another wonderful experience I had with Jacana. My web-based business software still needed adjustments, inclusions and modifications at the time I met Jacana and Rik was so handy in guiding and at times doing the actual works on my software at no cost. To this I am still so grateful. And presently I still need to consult him on many other matters related to software development and upgrade. On the other hand, I can say more than half of my technical support in the making of video adverts and auto bulky email correspondences were achieved with the help of Jacana.

And as I end, allow me to say thank you so much once again to Jacana for the help you are giving to the youth and start up entrepreneurs. Through you and others alike, Zambia is being helped to develop at a very good rate and soon the general standard of living will move to middle class. Bravo and God bless.
