Rwanda

Women in Business in Rwanda

In 2018 Rwanda was ranked number five in women’s participation in the economy, their educational achievements, their health and their political involvement. Women occupy more than 50% seats in the parliament. Though there is a political will to promote gender equality feminism is not a culturally developed concept.

Most of the businesswomen in Rwanda are in the small trade business – the remaining majority are employed by local and international corporations in middle career positions. Rwandan women are believed to be very loyal to their managers.
