Jinja Women Work on Stabilizing Their Businesses

By Carol Davis | President

Discussing Business Issues Women are Facing
Discussing Business Issues Women are Facing

We visited with the Jinja women's group in August 2022 and will be visiting them soon in 2023!  Like this photo from our August 2022 trip, it gives us valuable time to talk directly with the women and find out issues they are facing with their businesses. 

During our time together in August, the women shared how their businesses are doing, and the issues they faced during the prior two years during the pandemic. They told about how their businesses were affected by the lockdowns and business curtailments in Uganda.  We learned that many women had to pivot to other sorts of businesses during the panedemic because their original business became too difficult. We learned that a lot of their customers had to buy less from them or not at all because they had no money.

2022 was a recovery year for many of their businesses and that recovery continues today.  We want the women's businesses to be strong so that ithe business can provide some cash flow that the women can apply this towards being able to afford a better home as part of our home building program.

So in 2023, we continue to help the women strategize how to strengthen their businesses and/or switch to new businesses which will be more profitable. There is still much work to be done in this area! We look forward to being in Uganda again in 2023 and continuing this process.

We remain optimistic that home building can begin later this year. In the meantime, we will continue to use some of the funding from this project in ways that will help the women strengthen their businesses.
