Rwanda : Ministry trains entrepreneurs on project management
It has been realized; 40 people from the districts of Ruhango and Nyanza have well researched business proposals under the program ‘Hanga Umurimo’ in a recent training.
The work shop that was organized by the government through the Ministry of trade and industry was held at hotel Heritage.
The coordinator of SORWAFFA Emmanuel Aime Niyomusabye reminded people who had attended the work shop that the money given to them by the banks and other financial institutions is not meant to solve their own other issues but to be ventured in to projects which produce benefits since the money should be paid back with a profit.
The work shop was aimed at equipping people with extensive knowledge on how they can properly make use of the money borrowed from banks and other financial institutions.
People who attended the work shop were equipped with skills on how they can always monitor their projects if they are to earn a profit as a way of avoiding loses that can make a person fail to pay back the borrowed money from the banks and financial institutions.
“Having enough skills on how to monitor a project enables a person to develop since the project will be earning”, Niyomusabye remarked.
He said that the people in this category are expected to be great entrepreneurs and portray a good example to the rest of Rwandans so they can also come up with brilliant business proposals that accelerate development.
One of entrepreneurs Laurent Urimubenshi was pleased of how his business proposal came in the first place before all others in the ‘Hanga Umurimo’ countrywide.
“The workshop was very much important to us because I learnt how to compete with others on the market as at the same time I don’t interfere with other peoples businesses”, Laurent Urimubenshi remarked.
The business proposal of Mr. Laurent Urimubenshi is to set up a factory that packs greens and fruits for exporting to European countries. The project is expected to cost about Rwf65 million.
People who had attended the workshop encourage the Rwandan community to make use of banks and other financial institutions by borrowing money to venture in to various projects if they are to achieve development.
