The Barefoot in Business Global marketplace

Just like the stars of the film we have big ambitions here at Barefoot HQ. Launching initially in Uganda and then rolling out globally, the Barefoot Marketplace will be a one stop shop for women across the globe to trade, interact and invest in each other. 

After years of filming with these women and consulting with experts from across the globe, we've realised this is what is missing in the current quest for equality. It's what our Ugandan entrepreneurs need, it's what our global audience is crying out for and it's what you'll be helping create when you buy your copy of Barefoot in Business today. 

MEET THE WOMEN YOU WILL SOON BE DOING BUSINESS WITH

THE BAREFOOT EFFECT

NELLIE'S STORY

Nellie is one of the stars of the Barefoot in Business documentary. She is the founder of Makika Stylz and one of Uganda's leading trainers in fashion and textiles. According to Nellie, "When you empower a woman, you empower the world."

We are delighted to be empowering Nellie through the Barefoot campaign by not only helping to develop her business and showcase her beautiful products on the Barefoot In Business marketplace, but also funding her to deliver a series of workshops in Kampala's Katanga slum.

"Training has always been my passion and it's important to me that as I grow my business I bring other women with me. I could just give them my products to sell on the market on my behalf but I don't want to do that. That would be like giving them the fish without the rod. By skilling these women I am giving them something they can do for the rest of their lives and can pass on to the next generation. The thought of that makes me so happy."
