Margaret Naggujja, Mukusu Motors & Properties Ltd

Margaret is a Co-Founder and the Executive Director of Mukusu Motors, a company that offers automotive cars and agricultural machinery solutions through flexible financing options to increase the productivity and income of smallholder farmers in Uganda. These smallholder farmers constitute over 80 percent of Uganda's population and depend directly on the agricultural sector for their livelihood. They work long hours due to the use of rudimentary tools, produce low volumes of food and hardly grow surpluses for their sales, and most times experience crop failure as a result of inadequate use of modern farming methods. Mukusu’s financing option enables smallholder farmers who cannot afford to buy their own equipment to access the needed machinery and labour saving technologies to mechanize their farm operations. Margaret also works to encourage more inclusion and get women behind the wheels of tractors and commercial vehicles in a male dominated transport and automobile industry in Uganda. Margaret is a Chartered Accountant with full membership to The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, UK and Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Uganda. She holds a Diploma in Business Studies from Makerere University Business School, and has also completed several Certificate programs in Trade, Food and Nutrition, Enterprise Sustainability, Developing Gender Sensitive Value Chains, and Agriculture in Trade Agreements. She is experienced in financial accounting, taxation management, and budgeting and treasury management.
