Geoffrey, 36, Uganda

“My mum, back home in Uganda, is the reason I get up everyday. She’s my inspiration."

"When I was 9 years old I became the ‘man of the house’. I had to grow up quick and learn how to make money fast - to help mum put food on the table. I’d go out and buy household goods, then sell them for a profit from our home. I suppose you could say that I’ve always been a bit of an entrepreneur. 

But it’s always been my mum who motivated me: even today in my work as a Financial Entrepreneur, thousands of miles from Uganda. She’s the most positive person I know and that’s had a big influence on me. I’d really be nothing without her encouragement. So now that I’m far from home, I try and send money back whenever I can. It’s one way of staying close to her.”
