etablishing your business
try not to be ripped off…
In Tanzania (or East Africa) there are prices and then there are muzungu prices, which translated means something like 'white prices' and these prices are 5-10 times higher than normal prices. When we started our company I contacted a solicitor to establish our company. He knew I was a 'muzungu' and the price was 2000 USD. I talked to my wife and we found a local solicitor and he did it for 300 USD. Another aspect is that in most countries in Europe you can establish a company in one week, but here it takes at least one month. So you need to be patience and you need to have the right company to help you. This is where MIKASHE can assist you and we even do the job for you as we have our own solicitor associated.
distribution of your products
It is expensive to establish a branch of your company in a new country and in this case a new continent. New culture, new business rules, new employees, new public sectors and much more which is a challenge for many and many give up because it is just too complicated.
One alternative way to enter a market is to find a good solid business partner and let them distribute your products to a beginning and then grow from there. MIKASHE is doing this for many European companies and with great success. We have a widespread network of dealers/agents across the region and it has taken a long time to establish and this network could be your channel if you chose to work with MIKASHE.
Please contact us for an informal talk about your options.
