Meet the finance, agriculture innovators reshaping Zambia
On this week’s show, we speak to the entrepreneurs and innovators revolutionising Zambia. With youth unemployment in Zambia above 20 per cent, young people are looking for alternative ways to make their mark. We hear how information and communication technologies are playing a central role.
And, we learn about the difficulties faced by smallholders. More than 70 per cent of Zambians rely on small-scale farming for their livelihoods, and female farmers produce up to 80 per cent of locally consumed food. Farmer Mary Sakala tells Africa Science Focus how important information and communication technologies are in agriculture, especially for women and young people.
