“I dream to see my business grow. This support from BK and AEC allowed me to get closer to my dreams, even when I thought that COVID-19 had shut all the hope there was.”- Roselyne

Roselyne Hategekimana fingers are often red – slightly stained from the flour, powder, and tea bags she produces from the bright red hibiscus plant.

Roselyne is one of 25 young entrepreneurs benefitting from AEC’s partnership with the Bank of Kigali to support women entrepreneurs in Rwanda. Roselyn completed AEC’s business development program and secured an interest-free loan after completing a 6-month business development program. 

With her loan, Roselyne purchased processing machines allowing her to scale up her production lines.
