PUMA Energy has continued to provide its robust platform for independent entrepreneurs to develop their businesses, says board chairman Jacob Sikazwe.
Mr Sikazwe said the entering of PUMA Energy in the Zambian market navigated the local landscape seeking opportunities to improve the livelihoods in communities and surrounding areas of operation.
He said recently in Lusaka that the company had embarked on a series of projects to promote the livelihood of the people in which areas the company was operating.
Mr Sikazwe disclosed that the company makes about 8900 trips every month to transport its thousands of products by road to meet the demands of consumers.
He said the company’s activities were underpinned by investment in infrastructure which optimized supply chain systems and market of product. He said in recognition of the low and middle-income countries where the company was operating, it was committed to undertaking activities to make roads safer in view of the high rates of road traffic accidents. “In recognizing the high rates of traffic accidents in some areas where PUMA Energy is operating, we have decided to embark on projects to ensure road safety awareness in Zambia, and all our staff hold weekly staff road safety talks at all of the PUMA Energy’s locations nation wide,” he said.
