Yawama means it is good in bemba which is one of many tribal languages spoken in Zambia. I myself have bemba ancestry. My name is Nicola. I am founder of Yawama of Sweden and a business consultant at UnEarth AB.
Yawama news brings good news from the African content primarily from Zambia where I am born and raised. This is my story about my vision to empower women and small businesses in Africa. About the brand Yawama of Sweden and our handmade products made in Africa. About the challenges in starting a business in Sweden with production in Africa. About the producers. About design and social change. About partnerships. About Sweden and Zambia my two homes. About bridging Sweden and Zambia. About business potential in Africa. About me.
My sister in-law -Elina- is a guest blogger here. She is a swede living in Zambia and inspires us with her great photography and insight.
