Malawi is one of the countries in the world that has a high rate of unemployment amongst the youth despite that each and every year institutions of higher learning produce a lot of young people that have graduated in different fields of study with various skills.

The Tonse Alliance Administration during the 2020 fresh presidential elections campaign promised the youth in Malawi that once voted into power it will create one million jobs for the youth and also provide loans to the Malawian youth through the National Economic Empowerment Fund (NEEF) so that they should start small scale businesses in various areas of interest and the loans will be repaid with a fixed interest.

As a result a lot of young people are trying their level best to raise money on their own to start various kinds of small scale businesses so that they can be able to earn something and support themselves and the most notable small scale business that is being run in Malawi especially in the northern region amongst the youth is the car wash business.

Most of the car wash businesses are being conducted along the main road within the city of Mzuzu but also they are all over the city and with just a few plastic buckets of water the youth are making a lot of money out of it.

Those who have started earlier have reached to the extent of buying modern equipment such as a Hoover, Watertank and a Water pump which they use for the business.

Currently washing one car costs MK1,500 which is equivalent to USD 2.
