39 of our WOMA trainees attended the event on Thursday 5th March held in the grounds of Kampala’s national theatre. Many women had travelled long distances to attend. Nora and Karen explained a bit about WOMA and how the funds are raised, through music events and family and friends being sponsored for sporting events etc.
We arranged for two speakers from Equity Bank to talk to the women about how to open a bank account and the importance of saving and how to go about getting a micro loan.
Some of our trainees who are now running very successful businesses shared their experiences of how they have managed to grow their businesses.
