Blacksmithing with a Strategic Business Mind

GRASSROOTS PARTNER: Ndongo United Herbalists Association (NUHA)

Through FCDE’s Small Business Initiative (SBI), staff of Ndongo United Herbalists Association (NUHA) became certified coaches trained to deliver Street Business School’s business development curriculum in their community. Sarah Muhindo was one of the first to participate when NUHA rolled out the six-month training program. Sarah is among the few women in Uganda who works in the traditionally male trade of blacksmithing. She has been doing this hard work for more than 10 years but has struggled with many challenges, including how to systematically record her finances and create a feasible savings plan to sustain and grow her business.
