This is Cissy Naginda, a young businesswoman who runs a store in the Ndegeya Trading Center. Back in 2016, her husband abandoned her and her child, but Cissy persevered. She got a job and saved as much money as possible. Then, she enrolled in weekend courses to earn a certificate in food and nutrition so she could run a food store. After opening it, Cissy attended Kyusa trainings. The learnings helped her identify her customers and their needs better, which positioned her to better serve them. This has led to a 60% increase in revenue for her business and allows her to pay herself a salary.
The Business Plus ICT program, facilitated by 20 community leaders serving in 7 districts of Uganda, has been making a significant impact on the lives of young entrepreneurs and women in the region.
