Designer by passion

Habimana Bonaventure owns a graphic designer/photo studio in Nyabugogo center, one of the most vibrant business location in Kigali. When he received GROW trainings in 2019, Bonaventure had already one studio and since then he has opened a new one. “I have always had a passion with designing that is the reason I opened my business. During GROW trainings, I became more open minded and I learned how to set goals and to work towards them. My favorite module was separating my personal and business income; having separate bank accounts” Bonaventure says.

He offers different services that are demanded in his area like printing designs on t-shirts, event photography. He has started training unemployed from his neighborhood and now some of them have started their own business. “Young people are interested in this business because it is both fun and provides an income. I am proud when some of my interns become business owner as well, there is nothing as gratifying” says Bonaventure.

Both his businesses are worth more than 10 million Rwandan francs, his long term dream is to continue work hard to open more studios. “I have seen what someone can achieve when working hard. I encourage youth to start small as long as they have a goal and are determined to work toward it, they will succeed with no doubt” Bonaventure advises.
