WATCH | The Ugandan entrepreneur turning trash into handbags
Ugandan entrepreneur Faith Aweko is the founder of Reform Africa, a recycling brand that turns waste to wealth.
Aweko has turned Kampala’s garbage problem into a solution-based business opportunity. Transforming plastic waste into handbags, she calls herself a "wastepreneur".
Aweko employs eight women who source the plastic and transform it into handbags that are sold locally and internationally.
Aweko is a member of MOTIV Tribe, which works with creatives and makers in Africa empowering them to refine and scale their businesses to meet demand for local and international markets.
