My staff and I were all very highly impressed
by the rich and exciting course contents as
well as the lively and mind capturing trainers.
They first of all made good students of us
during the classes. Secondly, they were able
to impart into us the habit and confidence
required by rusty learners who needed to renew

discussed, this is a summary of my experience
at the EUg workshop dubbed "Helping Clients
to become bankable".
greatest challenge prior to this training
was having an appreciation of the value of
this training for our customers and as a result,
being able to sell it better on the value
considering that we were not getting the right
numbers of clients interested in the bank-funded
programmes that are run by EUg. Many of us
even thought we were going to waste a weekend
away from our families or our other interests.
We were pleasantly surprised.
brief, the greatest benefit for us (but especially
me as a person) was in the following areas.
* Better understanding of our SME market especially
our ability to understand causes of business
failure, behaviours of SMEs and various risk
areas that would help us make better appraisals.
* Various options of capital that go beyond
just looking to lend/borrow and how this helps
us to create better customers.
* Key Success Factors for entrepreneurs and
how businesses can use these to guide decision-making
* Last but not least, it gave us very very
good tips on how to be successful business
people outside the bank if and when we choose
to move on at whatever point in life. This
was particularly very rewarding.
would personally recommend that our colleagues
take up this opportunity especially considering
that it comes at no cost whatsoever (aside
of one's time).

on your office, I did not know that from that
day you were planning for me by preparing
us to reach to this point.

I joined Enterprise Uganda family, everybody

your own capacity and at the same time as

that you stay near us because I have realized

ETW gave me confidence to walk into a bank
and ask for a loan, something I had dreaded
and thought myself incapable of doing. I was
able to get an unsecured loan because of my
presentation, which is something I learnt
from the Entrepreneurship Workshop. My business
has now been boosted and is doing very well.
I had actually contemplated closing it before
the training. I am grateful for this opportunity
and hope that many more women can benefit

I attended the Entrepreneurship Training Workshop,
I have never looked back! Before the training
I was extremely stressed and even had no time
for my family and myself. I was always busy
fire fighting and this gave me no time to
contemplate the future of my company. I learnt
many things at the workshop and what I value
most is the ability to create and maintain
systems. Systems have freed me and as a result
I am getting the best out of my employees,

opportunity that I had.”
