Nyamuka Zambia has announced that their business plan competition for 2017 will launch in March so if you’re a startup in any field that has a solid business plan and hopes to  get K250,000 in funding, get ready to apply.

Last year’s winner was Musanshi Chiluba who owns a button mushroom business and her plan was to double her output and compete with other producers in the southern African region.

I would like to sincerely and immensely thank Nyamuka Zambia for their wonderful initiative of creating the Nyamuka Zambia Competition…and all the people in the team for your endless hard work and encouragement to pursue our dreams. This is only the beginning of bigger and better things to come. Thank you.” – Musanshi Chiluba

(i) First Runner Up Best Product Launch Event
(ii) First Runner Up – Most Creative Radio Advert
(iii) Second Runner Up – Best Brand Campaign of the Year 2016
