Now, that was a great visit to Uganda last week! I visited a number of the women entrepreneurs that were trained by Brilliant Entrepreneur 7 years ago. Many of the participants are still in close contact with each other and they continue to have a good relationship with the Netherlands Embassy. The Embassy continues to invite them for many events that the Embassy organises, to the benefit of the women.
It was really amazing to see how the women and their businesses have grown over the 7 years.
Of course they didn't have an easy time during Covid. Uganda doesn't have support programs for businesses, so it was a real struggle. On top of that there is the current recession. Still they are full of energy and determined to make even bigger successes of their businesses. We are so proud of all these women!!
