Financial Literacy Benefits the Family, Uganda
In 2019, Noeline and Sylvia attended the Leadership and Entrepreneurship Incubator (LEI) Program. When the pandemic began and local schools closed, they convinced their father to invest their unused school fees into a small-scale business. The family began raising and selling chickens and pigs.
The girls taught their parents about budgeting, online marketing, and how to increase profits. Their father is proud that their earnings now fund five children’s school fees and he plans to continue the business when the children return to school. Their entrepreneurial knowledge enabled the family to create a thriving business that benefits their family as well as their community.
