At the young age of fifteen, Bahati lost her parents and her home, and fled to Rwanda with four younger siblings. As the eldest child, Bahati bravely took up the role of head of house. She immediately enrolled in culinary classes and found a job cooking for clients. However, Bahati knew she was capable of much more and needed more to take care of her family. In 2014, Bahati received a $140 investment into her new restaurant business venture. She quickly hired four employees to help her meet the heavy demand at her growing Umucyo Restaurant.

Arthur attended AEC’s training and has seen a huge difference in his business now that he has adopted the lessons learned. He was also one of eight winners to receive an interest free loan of $10,000 through an AEC partnership with the Bank of Kigali. Arthur is especially excited to use the cash flow lessons to scale his company by reinvesting his profits. He found so much value in working with AEC that he signed up for one more year.

“My goal is to make this industry more modern here, as well as change the narrative of what an auto mechanic does. It’s not just a dirty job, you can serve in this industry and still wear a tie.”
