Sharon Katokye is a lady who has made her name by doing something different from what her competitors do. She eats from her sweat.
After her graduation, she managed to look for jobs but all she could get were negatives. From this tress, she had to look for a job that does not need much of investing day by day and can make her survive in Kampala.
She moved to Kansanga, and looked for space at KIU where she got a small space out of battling. After this she wondered what she could do and how she would do something that could outcompete her customers.
In her small room she had a personal computer which needed some repairs. This is what she brought and managed to put n her desk. Surprisingly she was typing but again she lucked a printer.
With the help from her mom, she managed to use UGX 800,000 sparingly and bought a printer, printed business cards which helped to boost her business.
What is so special about Sharon?
Sharon does typing and printing at the university. But she does not only do her work with in the university. All people who give her work when ever they are, be it with in Kampala or not, she works for them.
