Sinapis partnered with a group of Burundian leaders to offer our programs to entrepreneurs in Burundi. With a strong group of leaders who aren’t afraid to do hard things, the first class launched in the midst of the COVID pandemic in 2020.
One of these leaders, Jean de Dieu Bizimana, says,
“Businesses develop countries. They unlock talents and skills, creating jobs and wealth. Microfinance and other development initiatives are doing a tremendous job to untie those at the bottom of the pyramid to begin their upward movement, but more support is needed to move these heroes into the formal economy. A vibrant small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector made up of the middle class has the ability to initiate the positive and lasting transformations that our society desperately needs, allowing us to definitively overcome the battle against poverty.”
Our Aspire program is currently offered in Burundi.
