They did not have working capital given their state, but each brought a small capital of 50 thousand BIF to start and they registered their cooperative with ANACOOP, in order to have documents to contract a debt with Coopec, said Mr. Ndayisaba. That loan has propelled us a lot, he rejoiced, adding that it is almost at the end of its repayment. According to him, they hired two permanent employees and seasonal workers. Mr. Ndayisaba advises young people to keep in mind that everything comes from the effort made and to roll up their sleeves to work.
