I am excited to introduce you to our new Small Business Program
Director, Prosper Ishimwe. In his previous work with the Junior Chamber
International, Prosper enjoyed working with small and medium enterprises. It is
with the same enthusiasm that he intends to work alongside our clients and
members as they start, grow, and scale up their businesses into dynamic
national and even global firms. As the coordinator and lead trainer of the
Junior Chamber’s Ready4Finance Program, he made sure that entrepreneurs
received tailored coaching, mentorship, training, and finance for their
After working for the Junior Chamber International, he went on
to earn my Master’s degree in Global Policy with a concentration in international
trade and commerce. This gave him an understanding of how trade policy and
globalization affect local economies, and sparked his interest in the third
pillar of the economy which we often leave out: the community. It is his belief
in the power of entrepreneurship and small businesses to revitalize communities
that motivated him to work with RIBBA.
He was inspired by the vision of RIBBA’s founders, and the
tireless efforts of board members who continue to donate their precious time
and talent to ensure businesses in our communities have the resources they need
to flourish. He shares RIBBA’s vision, and is committed to uphold its values.
He is available 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday so call, email or
stop by the RIBBA office, and meet him. Office #401-383-1179.
He’s looking forward to meeting and working with you.
