General - Brief description of project

The project wishes to do business in agriculture across the all value chain (from production to processing to market access and to value addition) in agribusiness focusing on attracting, retaining and creating employment among youth.

The Ugandan economy is commonly characterized by unpredictable inflationary tendencies, a situation that tends to leave the majority of Ugandans out of business while others struggling to make ends meet. This is largely brought about by the soaring of food and energy prices that accrue from supply bottlenecks. Many economists have therefore argued that one of the key ways out of such an inflation cycle is to boost the agriculture sector in Uganda.

Uganda National Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a non- making-profit organization limited by guarantee with high credibility which has undertaken similar projects in past years.
