We are proud to announce our first venture in Uganda – Kiru Retail. It has been made possible by our local partner KEEO, who has been providing business mentoring services
to Andrew Turyamureba.
Andrew left school at nine. He began work as a motorcycle-taxi driver, gradually saving up enough money to buy a small market kiosk. Andrew’s work at the kiosk helps support his
immediate family, his niece, his parents as well as six other children in his home village. Working with KEEO, TradeRelief has provided a loan for Andrew to acquire a fridge, a popcorn machine and other equipment for the kiosk to strengthen and grow the business.
