The Story So Far


SCROLL DOWN

The Story So Far


The Film

Brought to you by BAFTA award-winning Scrumptious Productions , Barefoot in Business is a 45 minute documentary following the fortunes of Uganda’s growing band of business women as they defy the statistics, stereotypes and credit restrictions and compete for the prestigious Female Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.

Ultimately, this is a project that aims to present an alternative and empowering portrait of Africa - a world away from Aid and Aids - and reveal what life is really like as a business woman in 21st Century Uganda and, what it takes to be the best. Is it a matter of making millions and building a business empire or simply making ends meet and making a difference in the face of incredible adversity?

Carol Cooke

FILM DIRECTOR & FOUNDER OF SCRUMPTIOUS PRODUCTIONS

I set up Scrumptious back in 2010 with big ambitions of changing the world one film at a time but absolutely no business experience.  I didn’t go to business school so these women have been my education in entrepreneurship and I learned so much from them in the process of making the film that it simply didn’t feel right just to walk away, wish them luck and move onto my next project once production had ended.  

It especially didn’t make sense to do so when the response from everyone who watched the film was so overwhelmingly positive - “Where can I buy these products?  How can I support these women?” - and, when the message from the women themselves was so clear:

“We want your orders not your aid.”
