In 2014 Dieudonné Twahirwa left his office job for an adventure as an independent entrepreneur in the agricultural sector. Today he is the proud founder and director of Gashora Farms, the largest chili pepper export company.
From Habaneros to African Bird’s Eye peppers, the range is very extensive. He is currently one of the largest chili exporters in Rwanda, producing more than 50,000 tons of chili (worth $ 100 million) every year for the local / regional market as well as for export to the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Switzerland, India and the United States.
