5. Low risk factors
When you think about doing business in Africa, you will naturally think about a wide range of risk factors. Rwanda, however, has one of the lowest crime and corruption rates on the continent. This means both personal safety when you stroll through the streets of Kigali by night, and the delay of service-delivery as employees wait for a bribe, are a non-issue. Other common risks such as prolonged droughts, terrorist attacks, armed conflict, or high and unstable inflation rates are equally low.
