Donath's Boutique a Sweet Success

Husband to Beatrice, and father to 8-year-old Japhet and 3-year-old Ehora, Donath is now an expert baker!

Who doesn't love the warm smell of fresh baked bread and pastries in the morning? 

Donath's Boutique and pastry business is thriving in Busekera, Rwanda. An enterprising man with a young family to feed, Donath used to be a farmer. But he struggled to make ends meet—it wasn't easy to provide medical insurance, clothing, and daily food for the people he loved. 

In 2015, he attended a Food for the Hungry workshop on how to start a small business. It turns out he's a natural entrepreneur. Donath had the brilliant idea of opening two businesses in one—a boutique where he could provide the community with household goods, fresh fruit, and kitchen basics at an affordable price and convenient location, as well as a small bakery. 

His community loves it! 

He sells roughly 300 pastries and 600 loaves of bread a week. At 100 RWF a pop, that's 90,000 RWF a week ($134 CAD!). With this new income, Donath pays rent for his business and has bought a piece of land and a pig. He no longer struggles to clothe his children, care for them when they're sick, or feed them a nutritious diet.

Donath's successful business has created a new future for his family, thanks to a little training and encouragement.

Donath's boutique is always well stocked (fresh-baked goods are a favourite with the kids!).
