This synthesis report puts into perspective the nature of Uganda’s rural woman entrepreneurs, paying close attention to the women targeted by the Uganda Women Entrepreneurship Programme (UWEP). In particular, it looks at the status of women employment and entrepreneurship in Uganda, laws and policies, and assesses the viability of women entrepreneurship.

Rural women entrepreneurs in Uganda continue to face multiple challenges that impede their enterprise growth and expansion, despite pragmatic interventions from government and non-state actors to enhance entrepreneurship.

This report presents the Country Policy and Institutional Assessment (CPIA) rankings for Uganda, as guided by document reviews, with validation and agreement by the key stakeholders. The rankings are based on a number of different criteria, including four major themes divided into various sub-themes that are subdivided into specific economic indicators.
