My name is Mawejje Muhammed Dimma a Ugandan by nationality. I’m profession chef and specialist in waste management living in Kampala. My passion is into innovation and banana fiber value addition with over 3 years’ experience in this field. I have worked with a number of companies in the waste management sector which has shaped me to be resilient in this industry. My entrepreneurship spirit dates back when I was still in high school. My father is a business consultant and I used to work part time in his consultancy farm. It was from that experience that I realized my passion of helping others start and grow their businesses.
I am now the founder and CEO of Mawejje Creations a social business and banana fiber center focusing on developing affordable banana fiber products to reduce banana waste,enabling banana growers earn extra income to sustain themselves while creating job opportunities for disadvantaged youth and women in rural communities of Uganda through banana fiber production,incubation and hands-on skills training.
