Uganda is often held out as the quintessential African success story. Relative political stability and security have ensured that the economy has grown steadily in recent years. Yet the average Ugandan hasn’t seen much change. One of the reasons for this is Uganda’s exponential population growth. As a result, Uganda has the youngest population in the world, with no less than 78% of the population being under 30. Herein lies an enormous potential. For many young people, starting their own business would be the best way to escape from unemployment. But a lack of resources and knowledge makes such start-ups very difficult. With your help they will succeed.
PURPOSEThe purpose is to turn the Ugandan business organization USSIA into a sustainable cooperative. USSIA helps its members (2,500 in 2017) to access investments and a profitable market for their products. They also provide training on starting up and managing a business.
