TEXDA helps enhance skills of entrepreneurial women

For years, women in Uganda have been the vital contributors to the economy, so much so that they account for a huge percentage of the two million people working in the small and medium-enterprises.

Its not the dearth in skills, but the lack of entrepreneurial, managerial, record-keeping and marketing skills that is hindering the growth of small and medium-enterprises, informed Mable Kigundu, Business Mentor, Uganda Women Entrepreneurs Association Limited (UWEAL).

In order to minimize or reduce the effect of the lack of these skills on enterprises, Textile Development Agency (TEXDA) along with UWEAL had organized a début program for guiding the textile agency beneficiaries to reduce the gap and give away first-hand support. This program was organized for three months and it consisted of five mentors from UWEAL and five women beneficiaries.

The same came to an end last-month with an assessment program, wherein the women beneficiaries shared their first-hand experience on the benefits of the mentor program.
