“Before Business Management trainings, we were selling our products for too little because we didn’t know any better. Now we can sell our products for better prices by seeing how similar products sell in the market. We can now better understand how to price our products.” Jacqueline, Vice President of Twiyubake.

The women of Twiyubake praise their Generation Rwanda trainers highly, saying, “They are such good trainers who explain everything to us no matter how many times we ask them to repeat themselves. They are always patient with us.”
Twiyubake's Business Management and Entrepreneurship trainer, Christian, is also a business student in Rwanda. He says of his experience in the training programs:
"Working with entrepreneurs is a great experience for me as they have practical experience and I have theoretical experience. It helps me a lot and I can say that I made friends with them. There are so many concepts I came to understand especially those related to marketing and sales. It is a great opportunity for me as a student who needs practical examples and experience."
