Zimbabwe`s economy is on the rebound after an economic crisis it has recently undergone, with unemployment and poverty as a result. Lack of work encourages the country residents to look for opportunities in entrepreneurship, which embraces franchise business as well. Despite the fact that Zimbabwe people are not highly qualified, they are considered to be good employees because they are very creative and industrious.
