Ingabire attributes some of her success from Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs Rwanda that she joined two years ago.
“I joined the Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs two years ago, where I have been able to get trainings on how to improve my business, I was able to meet with other ladies who are also running their own businesses, got media exposure, learnt about online business and was able to start using other social media platforms to market my products,” observes Ingabire.
She is thankful towards the Women Chamber for various initiatives that are benefiting upcoming women in business especially capacity building.
With support from institutions like the chamber and Rwanda’s vision, Ingabire is hopeful about the future. “My future projection is to expand in this industry where I will be able to employ more people.”
Currently, 6K Furniture employees 20 people and uses at least 80% of raw material sourced locally.
As an entrepreneur, Ingabire advises other women saying, “I would like to advice my fellow ladies not to allow inferiority complex hinder their plans of venturing into business as everything is possible to be done and seek advice.”
However, she notes that her business has been encountering some challenges that still hold them down like quality materials which have to be imported from China and Dubai.
Like all other business, Covid-19 pandemic has also affected the smooth operations of 6K Furniture Ltd too, as her travels for business were limited and could not import especially from China where the company sources some of the materials. Nevertheless, they have managed to try source most raw materials locally.
