About me

fields of expertise

I am an expert in data collection,processing and interpretation, a rational decision maker, a social entrepreneur and currently running a successful community based organisation whose major goal is to promote the use of renewable energy and also encourage zero emission sources of energy for cooking in local households in Uganda,I have the capacity to forecast and model economic and mathematical problems in businesses and projects,I have studied monitoring and evaluation which makes me feel a complete package as far as business, investment,savings, entrepreneurship and socioeconomic growth are concerned,Lastly as a quantitative economist who is well versed with banking, investment and savings,I am advocating for a Youth Development Bank in my country to help in supporting youth enterprises and to increase access to credit and investment opportunities by the youth.This is aimed at boosting creation of decent jobs for the youth,investment,savings,economic growth and uplifting our economy into a middle income status by 2020. Since the youth comprise 77 percent of Uganda's total population and with highest prevalence rate of unemployment in Africa and according to statistics, it is estimated that over 400,000 youth graduate every year from various universities in the country but the job market can only offer about 150,000 jobs leaving 350,000 youth jobless every year,this makes the Youth Development Bank (Y.D.B) a big issue in this campaign.
