In an interview with Sandra, she says that her trust in government has increased because she had never benefited from any government program before. Being part of the youth selected to participate in the program has greatly improved her business. She has now increased her production from 100 Kgs of roasted coffee to 500 Kgs of roasted coffee daily. With support from the Program, she has established coffee drying beds and a storehouse for the coffee which has significantly improved on the quality of the coffee. As a result of this increased production, she has now opened up new outlets in the region and set up an outlet in Rubaga in Kampala. She used to employer 5 people in her business but she now employed 33 people. She says she is now looking for international market for the Coffee. Her word to other youth is that they should believe in themselves and not feel they are young. They should start chasing their dreams when they are energetic and take advantage of the government programs like the ENABLE Youth program.
Sandra is one of the 106 youth that have been approved by the program Investment Committee for financing under the program. They all have similar stories.
