Meeting Harriet, a Female #Entrepreneur in #Uganda

There are many different aspects of my role that I enjoy. One of the best has to be spending time with our clients. Operating out of the UK this is not something that I get to do very often. Please meet Harriet Nankunde from Kampala, Uganda. Aged 27 with a degree in Social Work she was faced with a limited job market so has set up two businesses.
One focuses on decorations for weddings and the other she rents a space within a shop and sells fabric. She employs Nicholas to run this for her.

Harriet worked with Till Koch from Regents University in London, UK. Together over 12 sessions they focused on her finances ensuring that she was tracking all of her costs. This enabled her to make changes to ensure that she was profitable. Her long term vision to have her own shop in the same area.
