In 1987, a group of dynamic women entrepreneurs established the Uganda Women Entrepreneurs Association Limited (UWEAL) as a non-governmental organization whose vision was to address gender disparities by enhancing and empowering the economic status of women in Uganda.
Today, UWEAL's mission is to economically empower women entrepreneurs to create wealth through business diagnostics, capacity building, resource mobilization, institutional development, networking and advocacy.
UWEAL is a membership-based association and a one-stop facilitator for women entrepreneurs, business women, women professionals, non-governmental organizations and partners in women development organizations. Since she was incorporated, UWEAL has acquired over 700 members. Her reach extends to upcountry branches in Bushenyi, Jinja, Luwero, Kabale, Lira, Mbale and Soroti.
