URA tips women on proper use of new technology
Uganda Revenue Authority has asked women to embrace new technology and modern farming practices to ensure production of good quality products other than using the internet for non-profitable things like tik-tok.
Speaking at the annual Uganda Revenue Authority women’s conference at Lake View Hotel in Mbarara, Ephrance Tumuboine, the assistant commissioner in crop protection in the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries, said that equipping women with information will strengthen their capacities.
“I want to once again encourage every woman here to embrace modern agriculture, use their phones to acquire more knowledge, explore external opportunities and embrace government opportunities to enhance business growth,” said Tumuboine.
She noted that women should use their own phones to promote their business rather than going on phone recording videos which will not help them.
Connie Kekihembo, the executive Director of Uganda women Entrepreneurs Association Limited appealed to women to spend their time in running their business to increase their income other than spending money on parties such as birthday parties, graduations.
Simon Mwijuka, the chairperson Mbarara city traders associations asked women to be patient while running their business.
