Sawa World Solution Report – Potted Plants

Sawa World Solution Report – Potted Plants

For Sawa World Spark Namazzi Irene, plant growth and personal growth go hand in hand. Spark Irene runs a successful nursery where she grows and sells a diverse variety of potted plants.

Spark Irene dropped out of school at the secondary school level to help support her father after he became ill and could not work. During those difficult times, she started her own garden after receiving her first potted plant from a local missionary compound. Encouraged by her family to explore turning her hobby into a business, Irene sold her first potted plant and hasn’t looked back since!

The costs to grow a plant (including the purchase of pots and seeds) total about 5,000 Ugandan Schillings (UGX). Irene sells each plant at 15,000 UGX, generating up to 200,000 UGX per month. Spark Irene used the proceeds from her business to purchase a house and to pay for the completion of her education. Now a successful entrepreneur, Spark Irene helps train others to literally grow their own small businesses!
