Knowledge builds confidence in everything that you do and helps overcome those start up fears.

When considering starting a business prepare yourself for the fight against your two worst enemies: not your competitors but ‘fear’ and ‘idleness’ . Nothing will move until you conquer all your fears and until you activate yourself and your team from words into action .

What do you value the most : your job content or your job title? So many of us prioritize the position which we take in an organization and having a very senior status so that we can compare ourselves to our peers . We forget however to look at the job content in detail and we sometimes end up in a position of performing tasks we do not enjoy or value.
Sometimes it is important to be a humble and carry out the job functions which we enjoy the most regardless of the title not realizing that those very same tasks will demonstrate our good performance and allow us to raise amongst the senior ranks of our organization. Others on the other hand prefer to accept a position with a senior title and later to realize that the quality of the job tasks do not meet our expectations or sometimes even our skills.

Start-ups Uganda

If anything, at least one positive outcome that Covid-19 will be remembered for is the digital disruption that it has created. Start-ups should now embrace the digital transformation that is taking place with jobs and opportunities being created in:

- start ups that help enhance digital capabilities of companies;
- start ups that help harness greater automation;
- start ups that help develop Ai (artificial intelligence)
- start ups using Cloud platforms;
- start-ups involved in digital literacy particularly with regards to industry 4.0 technologies for companies;
- start ups involved in next generation software that can enhance productivity;
- start-ups involved in e-education; e-medicine; e-government solutions .

The possibilities are ample and varied , if you have the relevant skills and knowledge you can make it happen and be part of the digital age transformation !

First things first: if you are planning to start a business which will require a lot of capital to be funded also from a loan then make sure you have already built a strong relationship with your bank.
It is sufficient to borrow a little capital then pay it back, borrow again, then pay it back as regularly as needed. By doing so you are slowly building a credit history with your bank of a client who has a good credit record .

Once your business is up and ready to go you will find accessing credit from your bank so much easier as you will already have built a solid reputation as a clean bank client.

30/07/2020

The most successful guys we meet are those who identify a market gap and set their goals and targets and go all out to achieve these in order to fill the gap.
Not those who constantly keep looking at the competition to see what they’re doing, who keep copying the strategies of the competition and even their products.
Be original, be yourself, build on your own product or service while keeping your eyes and ears firmly on the customers and what they want, not just on what the competition is doing ....

19/07/2020

An opportunity not to be missed for all Start ups and SMEs ....good luck in your application.

The amazing women at Wawoto Kacel Cooperative in Gulu, Uganda will be the beneficiaries from the sales of their original textiles and dress wear including masks which they produced thanks to the funding of the Good samaritans. The sale will take place in Milan, Italy this Sunday 28th.
It was an honour for the FinAfrica team to provide training in the past years in bookkeeping and sales & marketing to these women, an exceptional experience which perhaps uplifted us as much as we hope it uplifted them . Wish you a very successful event ladies, you are an inspiration to so many others!

DOMENICA 28 GIUGNO dalle 14 alle 20 vieni a trovarci nel nostro Show Room di via Cacciatori delle Alpi 16 a Castronno per scoprire i nuovi prodotti dell’estate 2020: sono realizzati dalle donne ugandesi della Wawoto Kacel Cooperative Society Ltd. che, attraverso il lavoro, acquisiscono dignità e stabilità economica.
Tutto il ricavato sarà utilizzato per produrre le mascherine contro il Covid-19 che verranno distribuite a Gulu, dove abbiamo i progetti, ai bambini vulnerabili e orfani che non possono permettersi di acquistarle.
L’evento sarà all’aperto e in TOTALE SICUREZZA (porta la tua mascherina o acquistala da noi!): scegli la fascia oraria in cui vuoi ve**re a trovarci: t.ly/QVzP
