Bpeace Blog Briefs

Stories of bravery, transformation and impact.

We are here sitting at the Serena Hotel with Richard enjoying the renovated establishment and wonderful Buffet on our last day. Fran said "I'm staying/"

This after we spoke to the students of Akilah. A school for young women that are entering the hospitality field. We each told about our journey to entrpreneurship. Richard summarized the whole presentation by telling them to remember the letters SWOT, know your Strength, Weaknesses. Opportunities and Threats. In short create your personal strategic plan now while you are young, and about the many women who own business in Rwanda that we have assisted. Thank goodness the women invited us. We told stories about ourselves that would not have known about each other. All we could do is hug each other when it was all over. WOW!!! Rwanda and what it brings out of people.

On to Pascasie, you can not believe her new building. She has two floors of commercial space that will be rented as offices. We have to find the pictures that Steve took when he conducted training at her former establishment and see where she is now. She said she could have not done it without Bpeace. Jobs everywhere while we were there and more jobs when she is completed.

Then on to Jeanne, she too has converted a portion of her home into rentals.

Ran to the mall where Richard parked in the underground parking lot. "Take paradise and put up a parkin lot"

Yesterday began with a meeting with a consultant firm called Maxinet to see if we have any synergy. They are considered the top consulting firm in Kigali. Training labs that go out into the rural area. They have to be a class act, the contract our Richard for services.

Meeting with Emmanuel was an experience to say the least. His energy is contagious and I walked away with a renewed belief in my own business. Now I wonder who was suppose to be helping who with a forward plan? The man is now selling Cow Insurance, Steve don't ask, all I know is that you will have your hands full, not to mention that it makes sense.

Then off to Bourbon Cafe to Debrief and to Heaven Restaurant for dinner where the secret word must be "Marla" because we got every flavor of home made ice cream that they make on the house
