Pacifique Nshimiyimana is a young agripreneur from Rwanda. As a business person, he founded and currently runs Real Green Gold Ltd, a social enterprise which does farming of tropical fruits and vegetables and smallholder farmers’ extension services.
Pacifique graduated from the University of Rwanda with a Bachelor’s degree in biotechnology. He has worked with different organizations like Digital Opportunity Trust, where he was a startup facilitator and business coach, and Mastercard Foundation, where he served as a youth engagement consultant and researcher. This experience grew his passion in community and peer-to-peer based leadership and led him to join the Young Professionals for Agriculture Development and become a founding member of Rwanda Youth in Agribusiness Forum.
As a farmer and a biotechnologist, he views the GLFP as an opportunity to learn and build science and fact-based communications around the solutions for our future agri-food systems.
