Luqy ManufacturingIn Lesotho, a women-owned company, Luqy Manufacturing, has just confirmed an order to supply 50,000 pieces per month of synthetic knit shirts and shorts for a year into the US market, and it is negotiating a much bigger deal with the same client.

USAID's Southern Africa Trade Hub sponsored the attendance of Southern African companies to meet US buyers and sourcing executives in order to establish business leads and capitalize on AGOA trade preferences.

“We were happy to have been helped by USAID in this manner as we may never have had the opportunity at all, especially because we are a local company and are still small," says Mairoon Dambhe, CEO of Luqy. "The orders we have obtained will significantly aid us in expanding rapidly.”
