NABW Annual meeting an eye-opener for former GMT Scholar

Memory Timburwa is a GMT Scholarship Programme Alumni who has now completed her MA in Development Studies from the University of the Free State and is on her way to becoming a social entrepreneur.

‘As an individual whose first degree was in the Education sector, this program was an eye opener to the socio economic problems facing Southern Africa in general and my country Mozambique, specifically. Hence my knowledge bank has increased considerably and l now view the problems in a more holistic way than before when l was narrow minded. My capacity in problem solving has increased.’

Following the Annual Network of Africa Business Women’s Meeting which took place in November 2016, Memory saw this as an eye opener to expand her skills and start taking action. Since then, she has streamlined her business ideas and developed a specific business model that has worked. “I did research and discovered my own formula for making cheap chicken feed. It has been confirmed by the veterinarian, and I have recently acquired my first batch of road runner chickens (a total of 1100 chicks) which are now ready for egg production”

Memory is now working towards buying an incubator so that by the time her chickens start laying eggs, she is able to hatch her own chicks and save costs. “I have companies which are ready to buy my eggs” said Memory. Her eggs have been tested and are quality approved.
