Straw Entrepreneur Needs $20,000 To Expand Her Business

Budding entrepreneur, Benedicta Nanyonga who makes a living through selling straw bags is seeking funding to expand her business.

The former staff of Bank of Uganda who makes various crafts from straws says her business is overwhelmed with orders from foreign countries.

“We urgently need $20,000 to purchase straw machine to double our production so as to increase on our export market,”she said.

“We have orders worth 500,000 bags to supply conference bags in united States of America, united kingdom, Italy, Netherlands and China but we can’t afford to supply because we still hooked to hands making which is costly and slow to fulfill the market demand,”she added.

Nanyonga through her civil society organisation Kinawataka women initiatives has trained over 256 women and youth in crafts making where most members have sought business to fend for themselves.

Kinawataka women initiatives has also helped the society in conserving the environment by getting rid of waste and  pollution because most straws that are thrown in drainages are collected for making bugs and other crafts.

Mary Okurut minister for presidency advised women to take advantage of the programmes government has put in place and form groups to access funding.

Currently ministry of gender is implementing women entrepreneurship and youth livelihood programme to empower them economically.
