Baho Holdings

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionBaho is a Kinyarwanda word that means “live.” I created this business to transform marginalized lives and to celebrate Rwandan spirit, culture, and hope for the future. Baho Holdings envisions a world where everyone feels empowered and has the potential for a meaningful life.
    Baho Holdings will be a brick and mortar store that will also sell online to international markets. I also plan to open a Baho Fashion, Baho Coffee boutique, Baho Safaris & Tours, and a Baho Foundation that will empower disenfranchised people in my community. These ventures will take time to build, and I plan to finance them through the success of Baho Holdings, as well as other means.

    About Me
    My name is Alexis Niyonsaba and I define myself as a feminist. I believe that empowering girls is essential to enable their agency and control over their lives, which in turn improves the lives of everyone with who they interact. In Africa, as is the case in many parts of the world, women who work and earn an income typically reinvest the majority of that money in their families and in their communities.
    I’ve worked in the hospitality industry since 2014, wherein I learned the best practices for satisfying local and international customers. By working relentlessly to improve the customer experience, I learned that I love serving others, and that have the capabilities necessary to provide customers with an exceptional experience that they will remember and share with their friends and family.
    I was born in Congo but grew up in Kigali, and was responsible for helping my parents and siblings financially from a young age, which required an entrepreneurial and competitive mindset.
