Business training in Rwanda

Small and medium sized enterprises (SME’s) play a very important role in economic development of every nation. Many developing nations lack a strong SME sector and that leads to high unemployment and low GDP per capita.

Rwanda has placed a high priority on the financial sector development and considers it as an integral way of transforming the country’s economy.

The political move promoting the country’s economic development has attracted the attention of different development stakeholders and investors.

They are intervening in different areas supporting Government’s orientation. Some are investing in incubating and nurturing SME development, offering portfolios of services that include business management training, financial literacy and others.

They are helping to prepare and nurture entrepreneurs to start and grow businesses with ethical values.

However, women and girls in business still face challenges when it comes to business skills.

 Improving their business skills is key to create a good business working environment that will empower them economically and contribute to the long-term sustainable development of the country.
