Pelagie N Mbabazi talked to Immaculate Mukankaka, the founder of Bed Cover Products, on the sidelines of the 2012 Expo. Below are excerpts:
Can you tell us about yourself?
I was born 26 years ago to the of late Leostauce Habyarimana and Clemance Mukasinave. I was born in Cyangungu in Kamembe Commune in a family of four boys and four girls.
I never had a chance to attend school because in 1994, shortly before the Genocide against the Tutsi, my parents sent me to stay with my brothers in Kigali, one who was doing business and the other who had just completed his studies in Ivory Coast. Almost immediately after, the Genocide begun and my dream of going to school ended.
