“People want it for its main function which is sexual enhancement but it also works wonders on cleansing and luck.
“My first time to exhibit was last year and I realised that it is a good opportunity to link with clients while marketing products. I’m glad to be back this year and I’m positive that I will get more buyers.
“Some of the buyers I met last year from Europe visit me at my Chitungwiza base every time they are in Zimbabwe and they have given me good business.”
