result of the unaffordable printing cost which was and still is offered in
DRC Congo. Hopelessly, the domestic industries are making it harder to
own something as simple as a visit card, business card!

between Two friends,

( computer operator, Business management), but yet decided to combine
their skills and abilities in order to affiliate with one of the most

control, but at an economical price as compared to the domestic market.
