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.

Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera hamwe na UN Women batanga amahugurwa ku bucuruzi bwa ba Rwiyemezamirimo b’Abagore mu Rwanda.

Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera, kuwa 21 Kanama

Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera hamwe na UN Women batanga amahugurwa ku bucuruzi bwa ba Rwiyemezamirimo b’Abagore mu Rwanda.

Mu Rwanda, ibikorwa by’ubucuruzi by’abagore byihariye hafi kimwe cya gatatu cy’ibikorwa by’ubucuruzi byose, bikaba bigize igice kinini cy’ubukungu. Nk’uko Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera rifite inshingano zo kubakorera ubuvugizi, kubaka ubushobozi, kubahuza n’amasoko yo mu gihugu no hanze yacyo, hamwe no gusangira ubunararibonye hagati y’abagore binyujijwe mu gukorana, batangije uruhererekane rw’amahugurwa ku bucuruzi mu rwego rwo gufasha abanyamuryango babo guhangana n’ibibazo byatewe n’icyorezo cya COVID-19, no kurushaho kwiyubaka.

Ku nkunga ya UN Women, no ku bufatanye na BPN Rwanda hamwe na Kora Coaching Group, Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera bakoze ubushakashatsi ku banyamuryango babo hagamijwe kureba imbogamizi bahura nazo n’ibyo bakeneye kurusha ibindi mu gihe cy’icyorezo. Muri ubwo bushakashatsi, bashyizeho serivisi zitandukanye z’ubujyanama bwakwifashishwa mu gukomeza ibikorwa by’ubucuruzi hamwe na serivisi z’ubujyanama mu rwego rw’imitekerereze n’imibereho myiza, binyujijwe mu masomo ahabwa buri muntu ku giti cye yahawe ibikorwa by’ubucuruzi 30 by’abagore biri mu cyiciro kimwe muri Kigali byakoreweho igeragezwa.

Imbogamizi ikomeye abagore bahuye nayo mu gihe cy’icyorezo ni uko cyaje gitunguranye, bityo nta gihe cyo kwitegura cyangwa cyo gushyiraho ingamba cyabayeho. Imbogamizi  zikomeye kandi ba rwiyemezamirimo bahuye nazo ni uko abari bafite ibicuruzwa kuri gasutamo batabashije kubibona, kandi ntibanabasha kwishyura abakozi kuko nta kazi kari gahari.

Izi mbogamizi zateje ibibazo mu rwego rw’imitekerereze no mu rwego rw’akazi ku bacuruzi benshi. Abagore bitabiriye amahugurwa ku bucuruzi bari bakeneye ubufasha mu gusuzuma uko ubucuruzi bwabo bwari buhagaze mbere ya COVID-19, hamwe n’ubufasha mu gushyiraho gahunda zo kuzahura ubukungu mu gihe kizaza.

Abagore bitabiriye icyiciro cya mbere bishimiye ibi bikorwa; bavuze ko batigeze batekereza na rimwe ko bashoboraga guhindura cyangwa kujyanisha n’igihe ibikorwa by’ubucuruzi byabo kugira ngo babashe kurokoka icyorezo.

Agnès Samputu, Umuyobozi w’Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera yagize ati : «ubumenyi n’ubumenyi ngiro baduhaye bwaradufashije cyane mu bucuruzi bwacu kurusha kuba bari kuduha amafaranga.»

Umuyobozi wa RCWE ashimangira inyungu zitezwe n’impinduka nziza uyu mushinga uzagira ku buzima bwa ba rwiyemezamirimo b’abagore mu Rwanda.

Jeanne Francoise Mubiligi, Umuyobozi w’Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera yagize ati:

 «Nk’Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera, icyorezo cya COVID-19 cyatubereye imbogamizi ariko kinatubera uburyo bwo gukora ubuvugizi kugira ngo hakorwe impinduka z’uburyo ibintu bikorwamo, hanashyirweho politiki zikwiriye, hamwe n’ibikorwa byo kurengera ba rwiyemezamirimo b’Abanyarwandakazi ndetse n’abagore bose muri rusange kugira ngo mu gihe kizaza batazongera kwibasirwa n’ibibazo nk’ibi cyane kurusha abandi. Twizera ko izi mpinduka zishobora kugira ingaruka ku mibereho ya ba rwiyemezamirimo b’abagore benshi no ku buringanire bw’abagore n’abagabo mu Rwanda mu bihe bisanzwe, nyuma ya COVID-19.”

UN Women yagaragaje ko ibyakoze mu mahugurwa yo kuzahura ubucuruzi bw’abagore hamwe no gutanga ubufasha bukenewe mu rwego rw’imitekerereze n’imibereho myiza byatanze umusaruro, kandi ko bateganya kuzakomeza amahugurwa nk’aya ku bucuruzi ku buryo burambye. Bitewe n’uko indangagaciro ngenderwaho ya UN Women igira iti : « Ntagusiga n’umwe inyuma », abafatanyabikorwa bari kwiga uburyo bwo kuzatanga aya mahugurwa n’ubujyanama ku bacuruzi bato mu zindi ntara z’igihugu.

Fatou Lo, Uhagarariye UN Women mu Rwanda yagize ati:

« COVID-19 ni ikibazo gikomeye ku buzima no ku bukungu n’imibereho y’imiryango. Muri aya mahugurwa ku bucuruzi, twizeye ko tuzatanga ubufasha bwihuse kandi bunoze mu gushyigikira ibikorwa by’ubucuruzi by’abagore byinshi bishoboka. Twamaze kubona amafaranga yo kongera ubufasha dutanga bukagera kuri ba rwiyemezamirimo 100 b’abagore, kandi twizeye ko hari abafatanyabikorwa bashya bashobora kuzadushyigikira muri iki gikorwa. Gufasha abagore benshi gutangiza ibikorwa by’ubucuruzi, kugira no kuyobora ibigo by’ubucuruzi bito n’ibiciriritse biri mu nshingano zacu nka UN Women. Iki ni ikintu cy’ingenzi mu mikoranire yacu na guverinoma hamwe n’urwego rw’abikorera. Bitewe n’uko turi muri Gahunda y’Intego z’iterambere rirambye, hamwe no kugerageza kubaka isi nziza kurushaho, yita ku bidukikije, idaheza, kandi idasumbanya nyuma ya COVID-19, tugomba gukora ku buryo abagore badasigara inyuma

Ni muri uru rwego, ikindi cyiciro kizatangira vuba. Uko COVID-19 izagenda igabanuka, ubumenyi n’ubumenyi ngiro bwatanzwe mu mahugurwa ku bucuruzi, hamwe n’ubufasha mu rwego rw’imitekerereze n’imibereho, ndetse n’ubujyanama, bizagera ku bacuruzi bato mu gihugu hose. Bizafasha kandi ba rwiyemezamirimo b’abagore batari bazi Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera kumenya ko ririho n’ibikorwa rikora, bityo bikanabatera imbaraga zo kurijyamo.

Muri iyi minsi, amahugurwa ku bucuruzi ahabwa gusa abagore bari mu Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera bagaragaje ko bayakeneye kandi bakiyemeza kugira uruhare muri iyo gahunda, kandi bakanoza cyangwa bagahindura ubucuruzi bwabo.

Ni gute umuntu aba umunyamuryango w’Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera?

Kugira ngo abe umunyamuryango w’Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera, rwiyemezamirimo w’umugore agomba kuba afite ubucuruzi bumwanditseho ku buryo bwemewe n’amategeko, kandi akishyura umusanzu buri mwaka.  Ku yandi makuru, wakwegera Umuhuzabikorwa ushinzwe abanyamuryango b’Ishami ry’Abagore mu Rugaga rw’Abikorera, Marie Olga Mukayisenga, cyangwa ukabasura kuri Twitter yabo (@chamberofwomen):

Rwanda Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs/PSF with Support of UN Women provides Business Clinics for Women-Led Businesses affected by COVID-19 in Rwanda

In Rwanda, women-owned businesses account for about one-third of all businesses, a large portion of the economy. As the PSF – Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs’ mandate is to provide advocacy, capacity building, linkages to local and international markets, and experience sharing among women through networking, they initiated a series of Business Clinics to help their members cope during the COVID-19 pandemic, and build back better.

With support from UN Women, and in partnership with BPN Rwanda and the Kora Coaching Group, the Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs assessed their members to find out their challenges and greatest needs during the pandemic. From this assessment, they designed a series of business continuity advisory services combined with psychosocial support services, with one-on-one coaching sessions for a pilot cohort of thirty women-owned businesses in Kigali.

The biggest challenge for women during the pandemic was that it came with no warning, and no business had time to prepare or make a strategy. The major challenges the entrepreneurs faced were that those who had merchandise at customs were unable to access them and had difficulties paying employees when there was no work.

These challenges brought both psychological and professional distress to many businesses. Women in the business clinic needed both support in assessing how their businesses were operating prior to COVID-19, as well as the assistance in making recovery plans for the future.

These interventions have been greatly appreciated by women who were part of the first cohort who noted that they had never imagined that they could find ways to either transform or adjust their business practices to survive the pandemic.

What they have received in terms of knowledge and skills has contributed much more to our businesses than money ever could.”

– Agnès Samputu, Director, PSF Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs

The Chairperson of RCWE insists on the expected outcome and impact of this project on the lives of women entrepreneurs in Rwanda.

“As the Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs, the COVID-19 pandemic provides us with a challenge and an opportunity to advocate for systemic changes and appropriate policies, interventions and actions that protect Rwandan women entrepreneurs and all the women in general from being disproportionately affected by shocks like these in the future. It is our belief that these changes could also have a far-reaching effect on the state of women entrepreneurs and women equality in Rwanda at even more stable times, post COVID-19.”

Jeanne Francoise Mubiligi, The Chairperson, PSF-Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs

UN Women noted that the efforts made through the business clinic to restore women’s businesses and provide the necessary psychosocial support have shown positive results, and that they look forward to continuing these types of business clinics in a sustainable way. Since a core value of UN Women is to “Leave No One Behind,” partners are exploring ways to bring these workshops and mentoring to small businesses in other provinces of the country.

‘‘The COVID-19 crisis is both a health and a socio-economic crisis. With this business clinic we hope to provide the quick and quality support to assist as many women-owned businesses as possible. We have already secured funding to extend the support to 100 women entrepreneurs and we are encouraged that new partners might be joining us in this endeavor. Supporting more women-owned businesses to launch, own and manage small and medium enterprises is integral to our work as UN Women. This is at the heart of our collaboration with the government and with the private sector. As we enter the decade of the SDGs and try to build a better, greener, inclusive, and equitable world post COVID-19, we must ensure that women are not left behind.’’

Fatou Lo, UN Women Representative in Rwanda

To this end, a second cohort will begin soon. While the situation of COVID-19 is stabilizing to some extent, the knowledge and skills conveyed through the business clinic, along with the psycho-social support and mentoring, have the potential to reach out to small businesses nationwide. It may also help women entrepreneurs who are not aware of the Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs to learn about its existence and activities, and motivate them to join.

Currently, the business clinics are available only to those women who are members of the Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs in good standing, and who have expressed their needs and committed to participate in the program and improving or transforming their businesses.

How can one become a member of the PSF chamber?

To become a member of the PSF- Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs, a business woman must have a legally registered business, and pay dues on a yearly basis. For more information, contact the Chamber’s Membership Coordinator, Marie Olga Mukayisenga, or visit them on Twitter (@chamberofwomen):

SPARK Rwanda: Providing a Space for Rwandan Entrepreneurs to Learn from Each Other

SPARK Rwanda creates better jobs and improved access to employment through entrepreneurship development throughout the country. Because many of SPARK’s entrepreneurs live in more rural areas of Rwanda, the COVID-19 pandemic presented a number of challenges in terms of reaching these entrepreneurs with the information and training that they need. Additionally, COVID-19 decreased the person-to-person exchanges to mouth exchange they normally have among each other.

To overcome these challenges, SPARK Rwanda launched a number of initiatives to continue coaching, mentoring, and training entrepreneurs during the lockdown. This led to the creation of the SPARK Rwanda Facebook platform for entrepreneurs (click here to access). This is a peer-to-peer learning platform that any entrepreneur or businessperson in Rwanda can access to share, learn and even collaborate together.

SPARK’s motto is “Dare to ask, dare to share, dare to learn.” By participating in the Facebook group, entrepreneurs have the chance to share their experiences, ask questions, and get advice from the SPARK team, and learn from each other. Many SMEs in Rwanda are facing issues in terms of access to finance and business given the pandemic, and need a place to get more information and get more connected/increase business relations. The group is designed to meet that need.

Working together with Youth Business International (YBI) and Accenture, SPARK will continue to interact with entrepreneurs over Facebook to support SMEs and provide webinars, training, coaching and mentorship, and a place for entrepreneurs to meet virtually – even when it is difficult to meet in person. Given SPARK’s success in business development in Rwanda, becoming part of the network via Facebook can add value to any small business and increase your network.

More broadly in Rwanda, SPARK continues to work with agricultural value chains and in helping cooperatives to become more professional. For these rural entrepreneurs, proximity coaching and mentorship continues as life slowly returns to normal, although much is still done by Skype or by telephone.

SPARK will soon launch their COVID-19 response strategy, so continue to visit the SME Response Clinic for updates.

Relief Measures Available for Women Entrepreneurs During and Post COVID-19

 

 New Faces New Voices Rwanda in collaboration with the SME Response Clinic will be hosting a live discussion focused on existing government relief measures that can help support women entrepreneurs during and post COVID-19. The discussion will be hosted on the SME Response Clinic’s Facebook page at 3:00 pm on July 16 and will be held primarily in Kinyarwanda.

Micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) play a significant role in the Rwandan economy and contribute to sustain livelihoods for many.  According to the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda’s Establishment Census 2017, the sector, including private sector and cooperatives, represents 99% of businesses and over 70% of in-establishment employment. Women entrepreneurs are a vital force in Rwanda’s economy. Statistics from the National Gender Policy in Rwanda indicate that women head 42 percent of enterprises and comprise 58 percent of enterprises in the informal sector, which accounts for 30 percent of GDP. National surveys indicate that women entrepreneurs also have a tremendous impact on job creation in Rwanda, with many hiring between 3 and 5 employees to work in their businesses.

In addition to contributing to the development of their local communities through offering employment opportunities, women entrepreneurs contribute substantially to the development of their families through health and nutrition, ensuring funds are available for school fees and higher education for their children, and making improvements to their homes with profits from their businesses. Their contributions, however, are not without challenges. Women entrepreneurs in Rwanda face difficulties in access to three important factors: information, business skills training and development, and finance. They grapple with issues such as high taxes and transportation costs as well as discrimination in property ownership.

As in many markets across the globe, women entrepreneurs in Rwanda have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and measures to contain the spread of the virus have deepened some of the existing challenges they face. In the face of drops in demand or disruptions in the supply chains, a number of jobs have been lost or are at the brink while loans, taxes and rent are going unpaid. To respond to the challenge, the Government of Rwanda introduced the Economic Recovery Fund (ERF) as a mechanism to mitigate the threats that the pandemic is putting on the sector. Due to known barriers women in business face, there is a legitimate concern that without a deliberate effort women-owned/led MSMEs are likely to remain ill-informed and their uptake of ERF less than optimal.

To provide information about ERF and other private and public sector measures available to support women entrepreneurs in these uncertain times, New Faces New Voices Rwanda in collaboration with the SME Response Clinic will be hosting a live discussion focused on how government measures to address the economic effects of COVID-19 can support women entrepreneurs. The discussion will be hosted on the SME Response Clinic’s Facebook page at 3:00 pm on July 16. To increase accessibility for women entrepreneurs, the event will be held primarily in Kinyarwanda.

Panelists include:

Dr. Monique Nsanzabaganwa, Deputy Governor, National Bank of Rwanda

Jeanne Françoise Mubiligi, Chairperson, Rwanda Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs

Claude Kabutware, Project Coordinator, Pro- Femmes Twese Hamwe

Hannington Namara, Managing Director, Equity Bank Rwanda

The panel will be moderated by Ida Ingabire, Secretariat at New Faces, New Voices Rwanda and Ruziga Emmanuel Masantura, Business Jounalist, Rwanda Broadcasting Agency

 This discussion will be the first of a two-part conversation with key stakeholders in the Rwandan economy. The second webinar, scheduled for July 30, will focus on how financial services providers are addressing the specific needs of women entrepreneurs in the face of COVID-19.

UPDATE May 12th: Cargo and Import

What do I do if I import goods and need to visit a border to get this cargo?

Answer:

On May 9th, 2020, the Ministry of Infrastructure announced that truck owners, importers, cargo owners, and warehouse operators who need to travel to a border to import or export goods can travel to Rusumo and Kagitumba borders for that reason.

To stay safe and secure, anyone traveling for that reason must now register with the Ministry of Infrastructure. The deadline for registration was May 11th, 2020, but if for some reason you missed this you may contact the following:

The May 1st, 2020 regulations that require all goods/cargo to be immediately cleared and taken within one day from customs border posts are still in place. As before, if an importer fails to take their goods/cargo within two days, they will be required to pay storage and parking fees as follows:

  • Two Rwandan Francs per kilogram per day for parking.
  • Two Rwandan Francs per kilogram in addition to normal storage fees in the warehouse.
  • After two days, goods/cargo will be transported to Kigali warehouses. The cost will be the responsibility of the importer.

The Government is doing all possible to be sure that the clearance of goods/cargo takes place as efficiently and safely as possible.

Be Safe! Make sure you continue to follow general preventative measures. And stay healthy!

Reba inyandiko yasohotse ku wa 11 Gicurasi 2020: “Notice to All Hospitality Establishments

I have a restaurant and I want to keep my clients safe. What can I do to ensure their safety while still doing business?

Answer: On May 11th, the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) issued a new notice to all hospitality establishments, such as restaurants, hotels and coffee shops. This notice requires that all customers visiting these establishments MUST register the following:

  • Full names
  • Telephone numbers
  • Time of visit
  • District of residence

These new measures will ensure that the Government of Rwanda can conduct contact tracing if and when new cases of COVID-19 are discovered. Note that this information will be kept confidential and not shared.

Hotels, coffee shops and restaurants have been allowed to open since May 4th, 2020, but they must close by 7:00 pm each day. They must also install hygiene stands so that customers and staff can wash their hands, or apply hand sanitizer when they enter. As with all businesses, all employees must wear a mask – and customers too! And always keep a distance of one meter in-between

Gyms, nightclubs, bars, churches, and other large gathering places will stay closed until further notice.

Be Alert! If you are part of the hospitality sector, make sure to stay up-to-date by following RDB and the Ministry of Trade and Industry for announcements on loans and other measures, as well as keeping in touch with your association, chamber and PSF so that you know what is available to your business.
