“I started the PAPETERIE business to bridge the gap”-Ihimbazwe Elysee

Look around you, see what’s missing and within your means, be the solution.

In the time of his studies at Mount Kenya University Rwanda(MKUR) in 2017 when it was still located in Kicukiro- Sonatube, Elysee who was struggling to pay his tuition yet needed to stay in school decided to look around him and see what he can do about the situation.

Given the fact that there were no stationary shops within the university and yet there was a need for the services, he decided to be the ‘solution’ while at the same time he’s earning to pay his bills.

With only a printing machine and photocopier, the young man started his entrepreneurial journey.

At the moment, Elysee owns a stationary shop selling all school requirements, provide IREMBO services and the ‘original’ printing and photocopying services still around his now former school MKUR(now at Kicukiro-Kagarama).
