For this week’s episode, I was joined by the lovely Mutale Sitali, founder of Likota — a Zambian furniture brand specializing in making furniture from reclaimed and recycled wood material. Their vision? Becoming a pioneer for the industry by creating furniture that is beautiful, eco-friendly, and reliable.
Mutale built her company from the ground up and launched right before the onset of the pandemic. Tune in to hear her take on what’s necessary to build a thriving business in Zambia, why she chose to prioritize sustainability — plus her advice for folks in the Diaspora interested in doing business in Africa.
