Alexa Diaries has been training several women entrepreneurs in the past few months.The training and mentoring programme in Kisugu, a Kampala Suburb, aimed at helping female entrepreneurs develop the skills they need to run thriving businesses.

Owners of small businesses – and especially female entrepreneurs – often lack management skills and information about how to access financial services and other resources, limiting their ability to improve and grow their businesses.

The training organised by Alexa Diaries focused on marketing, including the opportunity to use internet applications to market products and services and link to potential customers. Women exchanged experiences and challenges and identified areas for further support.
