In Uganda, small businesses provide a livelihood to many vulnerable women. Unfortunately, many of the small businesses fail because the women are illiterate and lack the skills required to run a successful business. SustainME supports sustainable businesses through provision of our all-round business skills training.
SustainME provides long-term solutions to empowering women and families to run sustainable businesses. We provide business training and support free to the women. Our toolbox consists of experienced trainers and their knowledge, and our locally developed business manual.
Topics in the business skills training sessions focus primarily on issues that many small businesses struggle with. The weekly training sessions include for example financial literacy, importance of keeping records, sales and marketing, stock management and business planning.
