Our Impact

 

SMJR Consult actively supports the growth of Inclusive Business in Uganda. This is accmplished through two ways:

(1.) Supporting the Inclusive Initiatives of Faciltating Organisations such as SNV, aBi Trust, Swiss Contact, ZoA, ILO, Netherlands Embassy, Agrittera, VECO, USAID MercyCorps, BSpace (U) Ltd

(2.) Working Directly with Inclusive businesses, strengthening them to more sustainably and profitably include BoP communities as (a) Suppliers (b) Distributors, (c) Employees (d) Customers. Some of the most recent clients supported include;

(i) Yellow star (U) Ltd: - A woman owned and managed food processing firm, a leading supplier of packaged cereal foods, sourcing cereal inputs from 3,000 farmers in Uganda.

(ii) Opit Investments Ltd:- An established aggregator of cereals (RIce and Maize) based in Gulu. OPit investments has strong supplier relatinoships with over 5000 farmers in Northern Uganda.

(iii) Ladwong Enterprises Ltd:- A tillage services company offering tractor hire services to farmers in Northern Uganda. SMJR aims to support Ladwong through linkage, BDS support, and promotion to support the scaling of the tractor hire service to more farmers in Northern Uganda. Ladwong served about 500 farmers in 2014. This scale could have and will be much more in the years ahead.

 

It is our hope that our direct and Indirect interventions with inclusive businesses have resulted into sustained Inclusion of hundreds of economically active but rural poor small holders in Uganda
