It was one of those God moments, where I happened to be drawn into the little shop in Mbale by a few colorful bracelets, haphazardly thrown into a case amidst of lot of crafts and souvenirs that you’d easily walk right past. But these bracelets were unique and beautiful, and I was intrigued, so I stepped inside their shop, not knowing I’d meet new friends in the process.

I met Damaris and her son David in February of this year, which seems like a lifetime ago given all that’s happened in the past 4 months. Their craft shop, about the size of a walk-in closet, is located in the central market in Mbale, Uganda. I smile thinking of Damaris the day I had run out of shillings and asked if I could pay with a US $100 bill. She had never seen a $100 bill before, and started dancing, crying and laughing all at once - celebrating God’s goodness and grace. Her joy lit up that little stall!

Where it's made

Ugandan women have been found to be the most entrepreneurial women in the world, with 1 in 3 businesses in Uganda owned by women. For decades, women have carried the burden of financial hard times as they care for their children and have been unable to earn income. The rise of female-owned businesses is changing the trajectory for women who are breaking through the barriers of a male-dominated private sector. Our friends Damaris, Beatrice and Rose are inspirations as they represent artisans around Uganda through Buganda and other craft markets, providing economic mobility to themselves and others living in extreme poverty.
