What do you like about working in Impact Enterprises?
The projects are very diverse so I’m constantly learning new things. There are lots of challenges every day but there is also a lot of fun. 2 years ago I read an article about outsourcing in India and that idea was very appealing to me. So when I learned that there was an impact sourcing company in Zambia, I immediately knew I wanted to work there.

I am passionate about IT sector and how it can grow in Zambia and Africa. When I have free time, I help my friends to create their own startups.

I am passionate about working at Impact Enterprises, so I want to stay in the company and help it grow. I dream that one day it will work not only with Western clients but with Zambian companies as well. I want to make the Government pay more attention to IT sector and its importance for the growth of the country. I also want to invest in other IT startups in Africa.
What do you do in your free time?
I like watching TV series, my favorite one is Friends. Oh and write some poetry.
