SECTION A

CASE STUDY.

Answer all parts of this question.

1. Patricia Namuyiga is an orphan who owns and operates a mini-supermarket located in Wakiso Town Council. The start-up was not an easy one. She started in 2015 as a hawker after completing A’ Level with an ambition of testing the school entrepreneurship club skills she acquired.

She had raised shs 120,000 from her cousin sister, sold her text books at shs 80,000, borrowed shs 100,000 from the area councilor and started hawking items like, flasks, flat irons, plastics, sauce pans, toothpaste, phone chargers, bed sheets and other related items depending on the changes in market trends. Later the suppliers developed confidence in her and she managed to supplement her capital with trade credit.

In 2017, after acquiring more business experience and raising more capital worth shs 8,000,000, she started a small PANA supermarket business. She succeeded in expanding it and recruited five youthful educated, unmarried, experienced and cheap female shop attendants.

Using her computer proficiency, she surfs the internet and establishes trendy items needed by her clients which she always supplies. In addition, she regularly uses questionnaires, personal contacts, interviews, observation and sampling to guide her in marketing management.

Patricia is naturally a mean business woman and fears to undertake intensive advertising of her mini-supermarket.

However, PANA is doing fairly well with total assets of shs 35,550,000, long term liabilities of shs 5,370,000 and short term liabilities amounting to shs 2,144,200.
