BBOXX has created a partnership with Energie Solutions Durbales in Central African Republic for the representation and distribution of BBOXX’s energy solutions. Olivier Udahemuka, director of sales and distribution in Rwanda, was invited by Energie Solutions Durables to elaborate and concretise a partnership to advertise our company’s culture and distribute our products in the Central African Republic where only 4% of the population has access to electricity.
Olivier left Rwanda, his family and his four month old daughter for an epic business trip to this landlocked country above the Democratic Republic of Congo which is well known for its considerable resources of timber and diamonds.

As part of his trip he developed a strong support and contact network among the local government which has put a high priority on electrification projects. BBOXX has sent 100 BB5s from its factory in Kigali to ESD in Bangui so that they can carry out the required market research before making an order of 3,000 units within the coming six months.
Olivier and ESD had a successful meeting with the Minister of Trade at the end of which we received VAT and import duty exemption on our solar products for the coming three years. Olivier has now returned to Rwanda where he is handling the sales, distribution and after-sale services of our products in and around Kigali.
