Famille Sikukata Group's story

Mireille and her younger sister inherited this business from their father when he died. It was difficult in the beginning because they lacked the knowledge they needed but, after some help from their brother who worked with their father and is experienced in this line of work, they managed and later discovered PAIDEK, which provides them with financial support.

One of the business challenges faced by Mireille is the bad state of the supply routes and the growing insecurity on the Kasindi-Butembo road, the only route they use after getting their supplies in Kampala and Nairobi.

Mireille is the woman in the multi-coloured dress who is wearing a scarf.
