Entrepreneurship in Lesotho – The Past, Present and Future

Here is some fascinating reading from Dr Sean Maliehe (PhD), a postdoctoral research fellow in the Human Economy Programme, Centre for Advancement of Scholarship, University of Pretoria.

Dr Maliehe works on the economic history of Lesotho and on the development of mobile money in southern Africa (Lesotho and South Africa).

He gave a fascinating lecture in Maseru on Entrepreneurship in Lesotho, only his third time presenting the subject in his native country.
