Ugandans whose jobs have been affected or completely wiped by the devastating effects of the coronavirus pandemic are advised to identify new opportunities for survival.
Finance minister Matia Kasaijja told parliament recently that over 780,000 Ugandans may be pushed into poverty after losing their jobs as the spread of coronavirus takes a toll on Uganda’s economy.
Meanwhile the business climate index report published by the Economic Policy Research Centre, showed that 4.4 million Ugandans could lose their jobs if the Coronavirus pandemic persists for the next six months.
Now as many people are pondering about how to start a new business to cope with the pandemic situation, Alexander Kyokwijuka, the Executive Director Youth Aid Afric and a business consultant tips on how to identify a suitable activity in the shortest possible time.
For those worried about startup capital, Kwokwijuka says the most important capital one has is their brain, so make the most of it.
