Summary

No electricity. No running water. A BISS Bakery can run independently in any corner of Uganda, to reach the regions that need economic development most. With a focus on East Uganda, BISS Bakeries has helped more than 150 people with a sustainable income through baking so far. Participants are disabled people or parents of disabled children. Bakery equipment is provided as a soft microfinance loan.

Challenge

There is no government support for people with a disability. This means the special needs they have, have to be paid by the people themselves. Something like a wheelchair or an artificial leg is very expensive to buy. It can cost three times the income of an average job. But even something as simple as a pamper can be very hard to buy on a daily basis.

Solution

By creating a sustainable income, parents of disabled children are able to provide the special care of their child. From pampers to rehabilitation to buying an artificial leg. Also disabled people themselves, who have the ability to bake, can be able to take care of themselves.

Long-Term Impact

Bringing the knowledge of baking into a family, has a real long term effect. The knowledge is forwarded to the children of the participants. We already have bakeries that are handed over to the children, who then can take care of their parents and their family with the bakery business. The bakery itself can be expanded. From a bakery with delivery, a tea/coffee shop in a nearby town can be opened to enlarge the business. Bakery products with tea is a popular breakfast in Uganda.
