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?
