Mariam's kitchenware and furniture business started operating in 2008. She decided to begin importing second-hand household items and office furniture because she was tired of the poor quality items that were locally produced at the time. She sells these items in temporary shelters by the roadside display stall along the road to Entebbe International airport. This is a busy and strategic location that attracts both local and foreign customers. She used to restock every two months before the COVID-19 lockdown. Her business has employed youths in the area and has also attracted other businesses, mostly the retail market.

Before the COVID-19 lockdown, many customers took goods on credit. Since then, some have been severely affected and have delayed paying for the products. Closure of the airport and the limited movements caused by lockdown has resulted in almost a total halt to her business. She had paid rent in advance, yet she has not been able to earn much from the business. She now needs to raise more money to pay rent for the 2nd half of the year. She also had to send her family back to the village where there is affordable food and also to lay off her employees temporarily. She has had to deal with the problem of high expenses with no income flowing into her pockets. She has also noted the difficulty of restocking items for her business because of increased prices limited and cross-border movement. She is uncertain about what will happen since her suppliers are also not able to send her items for restocking.

Amidst all these uncertainities, Mariam hopes to raise funds to pay rent for the 2nd half of the year to guarantee business continuity. 

Kindly donate now and help her achieve her wish. Thank you!
