At Zhauns, we know how important empowering women is for creating an inclusive society and stimulating the economy. When women are empowered economically and gain independence, they in turn uplift other women and improve their community and economy. We believe that empowering women is key to economic growth and sustainability, but it requires work and external input.
Because women have been historically oppressed and given fewer opportunities for growth and development, training and upskilling are crucial to ensuring business sustainability. As a leading supplier of machines across the African continent, we provide business opportunities for men and women from all walks of life to start their own businesses or expand their current businesses.
We know starting a business isn’t a decision to be taken lightly, which is why we created the Zhauns Business Academy. We don’t just sell machinery; we also provide our customers with an online learning tool to help them understand business better and improve their chances of success beyond the start-up phase. Furthermore, we believe in continual learning, which is why we have created an online training academy for our customers.
The online course contains six business modules with essential topics such as planning your business or reviewing your plans if you have already started. Other topics include understanding the fundamentals of marketing, implementing good money management practices, managing your operations to ensure a great product is produced and available to your customers, increasing your chances of sales, and getting the best out of your team. Anyone who buys a machine from Zhauns qualifies for free access to the Zhauns Business Academy.
By investing in our customers, we ensure that they are empowered with the knowledge to create successful and profitable businesses. We are not only investing in one customer but also in their future, as well as the future and economic sustainability of their employees, families, and communities.
