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.
I would like to network with potential funders for my agri-business project that aims provide solutions to the agribusiness challenges that rural farmers are facing in Uganda. We aim to provide these farmers with farm training, farm in put loans repayable in commodities, modern transport, storage and agro processing support. We will make money from reselling commodities we will have bought from farmers in our program and hiring our various facilities.
We are starting our program in Wakiso district which is in the central region
Part of our program is promotion of use of bio-organic fertilizers and application of renewable sources of energy on farms and in farmers’ homes.
We expect to create over 500,000 new jobs over a period of 10 years
