Mango Fund in the Generations Agripreneur Expo 2015

Last Tuesday and Wednesday our team took part in the Generation Agripreneur Expo organized by the American Chamber of Commerce Uganda. We talked to over 200 entrepreneurs and visitors, we met a number of potential clients interested in products made by our investees, and we established a couple of promising partnerships.

During the two days of the expo we had a pleasure to exhibit products of some of current clients. Our showcase included products of Bee House Products, producer of honey and beekeeping equipment, K-Roma, wine and juices, SEB Engineering, metal fabrication, Don de Dieu, apparel producer, and Definition Africa, apparel and souvenirs.

During the second day of the Generation Agripreneur event, Elisabeth Lindow, Director of the Mango Fund's Women Entrepreneurs Initiative, took part in the discussion panel "The Economics of Business". Liz emphasized that financial institutions working with entrepreneurs need to deliver flexible products that fit production and sales cycles – often different for farmers and manufacturers.  – Debt is a long term commitment. Financial institutions and businesspeople need to learn how to work together not only when the business goes well but also when challenges occur – said Elizabet Lindow from Mango Fund.
