We spoke to Mrs. Dorothy Eriksson, Managing Director of Chankwakwa Ltd and share holder of Chankwakwa farms. Mrs. Eriksson is based in Kabwe, central Zambia. She just returned from her International Visitor Leadership Program in the U.S.

Launched in 1940, the IVLP is a professional exchange program that seeks to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits to the U.S. for current and emerging foreign leaders.

You will hear how she visited different cities in the U.S. and how she met with people from different fields. You will also get to hear how the IVLP program changed Mrs. Eriksson's business attitude.
