Written by newsroom on January 14, 2022
The Association of Vendors and Marketeers in Zambia AVEMA has appealed to executive members sitting on the Constituency Development Fund CDF Committees to consider allocating some funds to the informal sector.
Association Chairperson for Kitwe District Aston Sakala says people in the informal sector face a lot of challenges.
He says marketeers in various trading places work under poor sanitary conditions.
Sakala says the CDF Committees should also consider allocating funds towards the construction of market shelters adding that the majority trading places do not have conducive shelters.
He notes that with shelters in place, marketers’ merchandise will be safeguarded as opposed to situations where their hard earned merchandise is destroyed especially during the rainy season.
