Society has instilled intrinsic value in the small paper notes that are used as a medium of exchange between buyers and sellers of goods and services. This economic system is not perfect and we all find ourselves on both sides of the exchange; obtaining kwacha is therefore a perpetual challenge. Talking Kwacha! is an interactive medium for illustrating tips and tricks for enhancing our ability to sell goods and services and get that kwacha. Please leave comments and provide feedback!

Tune in to hear some of our accomplished guest speakers discuss a range of issues pertinent to running a business and being an entrepreneur in Malawi! Your hosts are Memory Chitanda and Christopher Wayland.

Our articles cover a range of topics including entrepreneurial ideas in Malawi, advice for improving business operations, trends in the entrepreneurial space, and deep dives into the resources available to entrepreneurs.

We are proud to promote Malawian entrepreneurs and small businesses that are facilitating private sector development and having a lasting social impact. Click here to here more about these enterprises and entrepreneurs.
