Front Cover
Fountain Publishers, 2000 - Social Science - 360 pages
Extrait de la couverture : "The future prosperity of most countries in sub-Saharian Africa depends on the fate of housands of tiny businesses, many of them (perhaps the majority) run by women. This book focuses on women in business in Uganda, from market stall to upscale department store, from the farm to modern service sector businesses like international travel. Margaret Snyder presents 74 fascinating and well-chosen case studies, allowing Ugandan business-women to speak to us of their successes and failures and offer their advice to those thinking about atarting up. The case studies are carefully analysed and lessons distilled for policies to promote women's entrepreneurship. This book willbe of great interest to teachers and students in courses on business studies, economics, and women's studies. It is essential reading for every official in business support units and should be given to every Minister of Trade and Industry or Economic development in sb-Saharian Africa."
