About Me

I am a 29year old social entrepreneur. I am a holder of Bachelors’ of Actuarial Science as well as a Certified Public Accountant of Uganda. I run a financial management consultancy firm. My focus is on supporting farmers add value to their produce before it is exported or sold to final consumers. I carry out farming on a medium scale so I have experienced the problems first hand and this is supplemented by facts I have learnt from interaction with rural residents in different research and capacity building projects in which I have participated.
