Emanu Georwell (34) is a passionate entrepreneur who founded Geossy. This cage fish company offers a solution to the low numbers of fish in Lake Victoria, and high levels of malnourishment in Eastern Uganda. Geossy sells fish feed and fingerling (young fish) to fish farmers and trains them in cage farming. “The fish trade is a good and easy way to fight poverty in Uganda and the easiest
way to employ people, especially female entrepreneurs.” Emanu currently has 19 permanent and five casual staff, and supplies tilapia to 135 street vendors, mostly women and youth, who sell the nutritious fish to earn an income. In Oxfam Novib’s Impact SME Development Programme he learned how to expand his business; now investor Triple I is interested in providing him the capital to
realize his dream.
