SME Response Clinic Launches Campaign to Recognise the Role of Small Businesses in Rwanda’s COVID-19 Recovery

The SME Response Clinic, a platform powered by Access to Finance Rwanda and ConsumerCentriX in collaboration with the Private Sector Federation, the Association of Microfinance Institutions in Rwanda, African Management Institute, New Faces New Voices Rwanda, and Rwanda Bankers’ Association, has today launched a campaign to recognise and celebrate the role of small businesses in Rwanda’s road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The SME Response Clinic is a platform launched in 2020 to support small and medium-sized enterprises to overcome challenges brought about by COVID-19 through resources and learning opportunities.

The three-week campaign is called ‘Twiteze Imbere’ (Let’s Move Forward Together) and will share stories of small business resilience, encourage entrepreneurs and business owners to utilise SME Response Clinic resources, and celebrate exceptional businesses through the inaugural SME Response Clinic Business Awards.

Over the course of the campaign, the general public and other business owners will be invited to nominate their favourite small businesses for a SME Response Clinic Business Award. Nominations are open in the categories of women-owned businesses, start-up or innovative businesses, and established businesses. The winner in each category will receive a cash prize of one million Rwandan francs to invest in their business as well as expert advisory services. Nominations are open from 18 March until 2 April 2021. Selected runners-up will be sponsored to participate in the African Management Institute’s Survive to Thrive programme. Through this programme, business owners will be equipped with the skills, tools, and strategies to navigate challenges and thrive in difficult times, and network with other entrepreneurs in Rwanda and across Africa.

“Small businesses are the backbone of Rwanda’s economy and employ the vast majority of people across the country. The ‘Twiteze Imbere’ campaign celebrates this and recognises their contribution to Rwanda’s recovery from the pandemic. I encourage all Rwandans to nominate their favourite small business for the SME Response Clinic Business Awards as a great way to show support for local business and the role they play in our day-to-day lives,” said Jean Bosco Iyacu, Country Director, Access to Finance Rwanda.

“We’re delighted to launch this campaign to celebrate the tremendous resilience of entrepreneurs in Rwanda. The SME Response Clinic Business Awards are one way we hope to honor and further support the small businesses that have been pillars of the communities during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Anna Gincherman, Partner, ConsumerCentriX.

Learn more about the campaign and nominate your favourite small business at www.smeresponse.clinic/awards or by calling 0781024420.

Rwanda Launches Entrepreneurship Development Policy

The government of Rwanda launched an Entrepreneurship Development Policy (EDP) on 30th November 2020 to improve the entrepreneurship sector in the country. The EDP was designed in consultation with representatives from central and local governments, Private Sector Federation (PSF), and financial institutions as well as entrepreneurs from MSMEs to large enterprises and from startups to long-standing businesses along with local and international investors, consultants, academics, and development partners. The EDP envisions the development of an effective entrepreneurship support ecosystem that creates the necessary conditions and enablers for Rwandan entrepreneurs to unleash their entrepreneurial potential and grow dynamic and competitive enterprises that will drive economic growth and job creation.

The EDP seeks to support entrepreneurs in addressing several challenges they face, including around management, access to finance, value chains, and the use of technology and digital channels. This will be done through various policy actions that aim to provide solutions to these challenges. Entrepreneurs will have access to information through a public facility known as the Entrepreneurship Portal, which will include information on available market opportunities, financial products, and general guidelines for entrepreneurs. The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) will oversee short-term courses about business governance with support from MINICOM, PSF, and MINALOC. EDP will also aim to make improvements to the business development services ecosystem by identifying capacity building needs of existing business development advisors to improve their service delivery to entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs will also benefit from new and improved entrepreneurship incubators and events to link them with regional and global institutions that provide technical assistance to startups, MSMEs, and large enterprises. The EDP also outlines plans to provide basic digital literacy training to entrepreneurs to drive adoption of local e-commerce, digital payments, marketing, and customer relationship management so that entrepreneurs can leverage and exploit existing opportunities.

To tackle the challenge of access to financing, entrepreneurs will benefit from the creation of a stipend/fellowship fund led by MINICOM and supported by MINECOFIN, RDB, and BRD. Additionally, the EDP will promote the listing of MSMEs on the Rwanda stock exchange to propel greater credibility and enhanced financial status of MSMEs. Entrepreneurs are also set to benefit from improved warehousing systems that will ensure quick processing and reduction of operational costs. Finally, entrepreneurs will also have access to a trade portal that will avail information about existing market opportunities and market data for local entrepreneurs and potential investors.

Ultimately, EDP has been formulated to create an environment where entrepreneurs at different level of growth can thrive. More information will be availed as there are developments regarding implementation of the policy.

Ibyemezo by’Inama y’Abaminisitiri (Ibiro bya Minisitiri w’Intebe, Rwanda, 2020)

 

Question: What do I need to know about the current state of business operations in Rwanda amid the COVID-19 outbreak?

Answer: Since the first case of COVID-19 infection was reported in Rwanda on March 14th, 2020, the country has implanted several measures to contain the spread and infection of the virus. The measures are reviewed every 15 days and have ranged from closing all business operations except for essential services to restrictions of the movement of people and cargo to between certain hours.

Currently, Rwanda has resumed most business operations, including restaurants, hotels, shops, and tourism operations with the exception of bars (including bars located inside of hotels and restaurants), which remain closed. Movement in the country is allowed from 4 am to 10 pm. National parks are open to visitors with a negative COVID-19 test and international air travel has resumed. Rwanda has partially opened its land border with the Democratic Republic of Congo linking the country to DRC’s small city of Goma to ease small cross border business. However, all the other land borders remain closed except for cargo and returning Rwandan citizens and residents. Travelers to Rwanda must present a negative PCR COVID-19 test certificate for a test taken no more than 120 hours before their initial flight.

Public and private transport has resumed all over the country with public buses operating at full capacity for sitting passengers and 50% for standing passengers. Capacities for staff in private and public workplaces has increased from 30% to 50%. For wedding reception and conferences, event organizers must not allow guests to exceed 50% of venue capacity. Finally, COVID- 19 tests are no longer required for gatherings of fewer than 75 in number.
