Inspiring Stories: Eliab

"Starting and sustaining a business requires passion and patience"

Eliab Habimana Kaddafi used to struggle to make ends meet. This all changed when he opened his first bakery selling pastries from a roadside stall.

He learned how to run a business through the School Enterprise Challenge. Eliab said the School-Business he joined for three months was instrumental in teaching him the skills he needed to run his own bakery successfully.

He now employs five workers, has one of the best bakeries in town, and volunteers in his spare time as a mentor for young people starting up their own businesses.
