When I saw Thomas’s subscription come in to our online store, I had no idea where in the world Malawi is located. Here is what I found:
Malawi is small country with 17 million people in southeast Africa bordered by Zambia to the northwest, Tanzania to the northeast, and Mozambique.
Here is a picture of its beautiful coast:
Naturally, I reached out to Tom and asked him about the state of the profession in his country. Here is what he said:
“Regarding network marketing in my country Malawi, I would say it is fairly a new business concept for nearly 95 percent of the people. Malawi is also one of the least developed countries in the world with a GDP per-capita income of USD $800 only. However it has a very big potential just like in many parts of Africa. Malawi people are very industrious and entrepreneurial!
“I originally came from Uganda, East Africa where people are more enlightened about the industry of MLM, and that is where I was introduced to network marketing. I have started to introduce the business here and I believe in the next one to two years, Malawi will be different as far as MLM is concerned.
“Suffice it to say you people are doing a great service to mankind, as our only hope in this undeveloped part of the world is MLM. I will be ordering more training materials from you to support me in building the business here. Once again thank you very much for your kindness and support towards this noble cause, hoping to meet you in person one day.”
This warms my heart and it is why we love our work. Together we are “Moving the Heart of Business!”
Big love to our networking brothers and sisters in Malawi! The Best Is Yet to Come!
