August 2011 - Burundi
At the end of the course a female entrepreneur shared her experiences (both positive and negative) of the business of entrepreneurship. This exchange of experience proved very valuable to the young scholars, and they participated in a long question and answer session afterwards, speaking mainly about the feasibility of starting a new business. At the end of the training, the students were awarded certificates to show they had attended.
The feedback from the students was positive and encouraging – “I did not know anything about entrepreneurship, but now I am very happy to know that I too can start a business and earn a living” said one. Another thanked the RET for the training, saying it was interesting and rewarding and that he felt a “desire to learn even more, because now I want to pursue entrepreneurship as a career.”
