If you're a small business owner, your financial prosperity starts with financial literacy. Join us in this journey to success. You won't regret it.
Over the last 20+ years, I’ve watched my single mother launch and FAIL four businesses across four different industries. As one of the 85% of women working in the non-agricultural informal sector in Uganda, the life-defining moment that led to my decision to pursue a career in Finance was coming home to see my mother wailing as the recent victim of theft and financial fraud. One of her staff had stolen so much inventory that recovery was nearly impossible and there were no financial resources to hold him accountable for his fraudulent behavior. Furthermore, my mother didn’t have the wherewithal to engage legal authorities or analysts to properly track the illegal activities conducted under a false alias to advance the scheme.
