African Start – Up: A FirstBank SMEConnect Initiative, in partnership with CNN.
End Hunger!

Did you know that ZERO HUNGER is No. 2 on the list of 17 Sustainable Development Goals agreed upon by world leaders at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on September 25, 2015? Did you also know that in support of the diversification drive of the Federal Government, the Bank of Agriculture (BOA) is considering a single digit interest rate for farmers in Nigeria?

At FirstBank, we are fully aware of this opportunity which is why we bring you information in this sector from around Africa so you can catch up and improve your business.
On African Start – Up this week we share the story of a Rwandan entrepreneur who set up a business called Winnaz in 2015 to make potato chips from potatoes locally grown in Virunga Mountains. Pascal Musasira has done things differently and hopes to expand and provide their goods throughout East and Central Africa.
