DFID Professional Development Week

September 25, 2014









On the 22nd September 2014 Mowoza contributed towards a DFID professional development workshop that was hosted by DFID in Maputo. With one hundred technical advisors gathered in a single venue, it was the perfect opportunity to discuss informal cross-border trade.


We invited thirty informal cross-border traders from the Assotsi Association in Mozambique to participate in the discussion. The informal cross-border traders eagerly shared their stories. One informal cross-border trader proudly explained how she went from being a street vendor, selling samosas, to importing products and supplying other small businesses in her community. Every informal cross-border trader presented stories that highlighted determination, overcoming challenges and a willingness to learn from their peers.


We are looking forward to the future, knowing that informal cross-border traders will eagerly adopt skills and technology to improve their livelihoods and that of their communities.



DFID, The Department for International Development leads the UK’s work to end extreme poverty. We’re ending the need for aid by creating jobs, unlocking the potential of girls and women and helping to save lives when humanitarian emergencies hit.
