Understanding Women Micro and Small Business Entrepreneurs in Uganda

Understanding Women Micro and Small Business Entrepreneurs in Uganda

This report focuses on micro and small entrepreneurial activity among women in Uganda. We present and discuss findings that were adduced on the entrepreneurial environment, motivations, aspirations and challenges of women entrepreneurs.

The report also shows that the younger women entrepreneurs had the highest number of startup and infant businesses while their older counterparts had the majority of established businesses. Most women entrepreneurs are engaged in trade with the majority not employing anyone.

The majority had been home makers before starting their current ventures. For those who had previously been in business almost all had previously closed a business. Most of these women entrepreneurs said their businesses were registered in some form, with those that were not registered blaming it on cost and the perception of the irrelevance of registration. The majority of the respondents had never received entrepreneurial training. Of those who had, apprenticeship was the most common type of training.
