[SUCCESS STORY] Connecting East African and West African companies on our platform
May 2, 2019
EDTEX Limited, a fabrics manufacturer from Ghana and KARSSH COLLECTIONS from Rwanda met via COBCOE Connects and Be.Connected
The story started when Edwina the Representative of EDTEX limited posted an opportunity looking for customers and resellers of her fabrics.
Her opportunity was seen by Emile Niyonzima, a member of Voka Flanders on the platform. Emile was invited to join Be.Connected following a trade mission with one of the Voka directors to Rwanda. Emile wrote to Edwina via the platform to ask whether she was interested in the Rwanda market – and she was.
In his role as a business agent based in Rwanda Emile knows businesses that are involved in fashion and design. Emile contacted KARSSH Collections and connected them with EDTEX.
