Speaking in Blantyre during the opening of the women leadership convention, the director of Women Ministry, Emily Egolet , said iit was important for women to be empowered through entrepreneurial and leadership skills.
“This is a landmark event convention where women will be fully equipped with necessary skills ranging from entrepreneurial, leadership and church ministry,’ said Egolet.
One of the facilitators on entrepreneurship Thomson Mpinganjira, the Group Chief Executive Officer for FDH Group, told the women to "put God first in all their business activities."
“Entrepreneurship calls for patience, hard work and most importantly praying to God. In business you just don’t succeed on first attempt," said Mpinganjira.
