THE DISTRICT COMMISSIONERS IN MWANZA URGED TANZANIAN TO BUY PRODUCTS MADE BY TANZANIAN SMES
As one of the services of promoting SMEs products, SIDO has conducted Lake Zone exhibition in Mwanza from 25th to 30th March, 2017. The Lake Zonal exhibition consist of Mwanza, Shinyanga, Simiyu, Kagera, Mara and Geita regions. The exhibition was opened by Hon. Mary Tesha, the District Commissioner of Nyamagana District on behalf of the Mwanza Regional Commissioner, Hon. John Mongella on 26th March 2017. On her open remarks, she congratulated SIDO on its effort to promote SMEs products. She was attracted by lots of products made by SMEs in an innovative way ranging from engineering, textile, handicraft, leather, soap and detergents, food processing to blacksmith products. About 200 SMEs displayed their products. For those who visited the Furahisha grounds where the exhibition took place were so impressed of the quality and with how products were well packed. The product which attracted most of the visitors is one of the cooker displayed which uses certain kind of stones as source of heat instead of charcoal. According to the designer‘s instruction, only three stones can be used for more than three months. This technology if well adopted can reduce by a bigger margin the number trees used to make charcoal and contribute to environmental conservation. The cooker was designed in such a way that, it was connected with solar panel and it has on and off switches which controls the heat from the stones. The cooker was design by one of the SMEs called Godfrey Augustine under Liberty Group in Mwanza region. During the closing ceremony, the District Commissioner of Ilemela District, Hon. Dr. Leornard Masale, urged Tanzanian to love and support fellow Tanzanians by buying those products made by SMEs. He said that, he was so impressed with what he saw on Furahisha grounds as the products were well packed and labeled. He added that, teachers from all levels can be training on various courses that can enable them disseminate skills to their students on how to use and produce various products using the materials available in their areas. He requested SIDO to visit Ilemela markets so they can enable sellers of the various products pack their products using various packaging instead of selling them unpacked. This can increase the shelf life of their products and attract more customers. He congratulated the designer of the cooker which uses stones as the source of heat as this can be the best way of conserving our environment
