“Hi my name is Zeenat. I started this business when I was 25 years of age and trust me it hasn’t been easy! I learnt from glass to gems, it was a struggle but my interest in learning brought me here today to where I am. I enjoy working with my fellow Malawians, exploring new gems every day and looking forward for more experiences in the future. At the moment I buy and sell gems as a trader in gem stone market and I have a valid license too. I deal mostly in aquamarines, garnets, amethyst, rutile, golden rutile, quartz, sapphires, rubies and beading material too like blue sapphires corundum. My father has a mine so we deal in that too.

Thank you.”
