Pamela Musiimenta is a twenty-six-year-old ‘hustler’ as she would like to be known. She runs many small businesses including a salon, a make-up studio, a baking house, a hand making jewellery shop, a nail bar and an events management company. For her business to be successful she has to make many transactions within a short time to numerous people.
“At any one time, I have so many clients to attend to. The best way to manage them is using mobile money especially where they are paying me for services rendered or making a deposit to book my services” says Pamela Musiimenta. “And in this day and age of business where none is to be trusted, it is only MTN Mobile Money that I trust to ensure that I get my money from the client, especially where we are not at the same place to receive that money,” she says.
Pamela who hails from Rukungiri and is a graduate of International Business from Makerere University Business School is known by various hashtags based on her work including #BeingPamela #SilentDreamer #MakeoverQueen #GodsVessel is the true millennial entrepreneur, doubling business and her passions which brings her the much-needed income everyone thrives for.

Her experience with MTN Mobile Money is that of a friend rather than a financial service. “MTN Mobile Money is more than an application on my phone; I view it as a trustworthy best friend. A while ago while I was managing a wedding I ran out of cash but needed to purchase a last minute order of 100 wines that needed to be on tables before the guests arrived. Luckily I had MTN Mobile Money and I was able to have it cleared at the wine shop and then delivered on a boda – which I also paid using MTN Mobile Money! So let’s just say that MTN Mobile Money is my saviour, if it wasn’t for it I don’t know what I would do!”
“My transactions are also more convenient as I don’t have to carry cash around. In fact, I feel safer since I don't have to move with liquid cash. The people I also deal with don’t have legal documents or receipts or paper trails. MTN Mobile Money has, therefore, ensured my cash transactions are tracked and recorded by providing evidence of payment to my business partners and clients” said Pamela.
Whichever way you look at it thanks to MTN Mobile Money Pamela Musiimentas small businesses are thriving due to the efficiency and use of ease that the service provides.
