The International Finance Corporation (IFC) has trained 33 people from several districts of the country, who will, in turn, train other Rwandans with business plans how to write project proposals to access loans from the banks.

The four-day training, organised by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (Minicom) ended on Friday in Kigali.

Tony K. Francis Ntore, an official with IFC, said the aim of the training is to help people to create jobs by investing in different sectors.

“You find people with good plans but failing to utilise their plan. That is why we are training tutors to train such people on how they can get loans from banks and invest in their areas,” he said, adding that this will help tackle unemployment and reduce poverty, he added.

The Director General in charge of industry and small and medium enterprises development (SMEs) at Minicom, Alex Ruzibukira, said the training was in line with government job creation programmes.

He added the training would help people to get jobs and develop new business ideas.

Ruzibukira explained that later  the trainees would be moving from place to place in the country to teach people how to write proper business plans which can win them credit facilities.

He encouraged people to join credit facilities (Saccos) where they can get loans.

Agatha Mukasekuru, a trainee from Nyamagabe, said she looked forward to helping people create jobs in the country.
