OKAHANDJA: The first-ever annual Market Day convened here on Saturday in an effort to accommodate small business owners that are unable to attend big trade fairs in other parts of the country.
The one-day event allows surrounding schools, small businesses and youth entrepreneurs of the town to market themselves, said Okahandja Small and Medium Enterprises Club (OSMEC) Vice-President Gerson Nasau.
In an interview with Nampa here on Saturday, Nasau said the club that is only six months old, is a non-profit organisation that helps small businesses to showcase their products in the area, as they are not able to travel to other regions and take part in trade fairs there.
The Market Day will take place in addition to the annual Okahandja Trade Fair and Expo.
He said the event is profit-free, with entrance also free to the general public, adding that the club decided to make the event an annual one and is also looking at extending the number of days to two for participants to market their goods.
