I joined Swisscontact 20 years ago, initially working in Mali and Benin before taking up the position of Country Director in Uganda. I’m exceedingly inspired to promote economic, social and environmental development and strongly believe that well-functioning market mechanisms and a strong private sector reduce poverty by creating jobs. Over the years, I have realised that the art of doing business among people in Uganda is an inborn characteristic, regardless of age, profession or contextual background. It is inherent and distinctive, not just introduced or learned. I see this reflected in my resilience to go beyond and develop alternative pathways even in formal/wage employment. I associate with the organisation’s track record of building sustainable tailor-made entrepreneurship models that integrate into people’s local economic life and I’m pleased to be part of a team that helps to reduce poverty in Uganda.
