Sylvia Banda is a Zambian entrepreneur who is playing a critical role in the development of rural Zambian farming. Working only with hand tools, and living in villages without electricity or plumbing, the farmers have found a reliable partner in Sylvia, who teaches them improved farming techniques. They, in turn, provide her with a supply of safe, hygienic food to sell. Farmers testify that they can now send their children to school because they’re no longer needed to assist on the farm.
Economic Freedom in Action features stories from Zambia, South Korea, Slovakia and Chile. Narrated by Johan Norberg, the movie reveals in personal and dramatic terms, the impact of increased economic freedom on the lives of ordinary citizens across the globe.
