Akagera Business Group
It all started back in 1977, when two entrepreneurial minded Gorajia brothers were seeking a business opportunity in Bujumbura, Burundi. The two brothers came upon a car dealership. With a hard working, determined, passionate and business minded personality, the two Gorajia brothers were able to create the dealership into an automotive power house, which till today stands as one of Burundi’s landmarks. Building on the success of the dealership, manufacturing brands nominated Akagera Motors S.A.R.L as the exclusive distributor for those respective brands for the territory of Rwanda in 1997. As more business ventures were added to the business portfolio, Akagera Motors S.A.R.L was transformed to Akagera Business Group LTD in 2008.
