“Great Service Happens . . . Bad service happens all by itself.”

Service is an interesting product. One that is produced consumed and delivered all at the same time. Everyone in your business that has interaction with customer’s internal or external lives has a “service moment.” How can you make each interaction one of service?  Join us for a presentation by Jim Garcia, owner of HospiTotally, as he shares with us the keys to providing excellent service which will result in happy, loyal customers.

AGE: 45

BUSINESS: Gahini Agribusiness


Jane was always the “new girl” at school. Her father was a Reverend whose profession required the family to move quite a bit. Eventually, Jane completed her education in Uganda and began working with Uganda commercial bank in 1987.

In 1998, Jane resigned from the banking job and returned to her home Rwanda, where she worked with bank of Kigali and later with a telecommunication company (MTN Rwanda) till March 2014. She has always tried business while in employment such as; cleaning business, cloth selling and farming. Jane went on to obtain a Masters degree in business administration and in the following years, she took a part time lecturing job at Mutara Polytechnic University as she worked to get her farming business off the ground. Jane is good at multitasking. In April 2014, Jane left full time employment to devote all her time to her agribusiness. In a short time of nine months, Jane has managed to increase her cultivated area from one and half acres to five acres.

Business Info
Gahini Agribusiness is a large-scale farming company that started in 2012 doing seed multiplication of beans, maize and soya beans. Being a seasonal business with the challenge of its reliance on good weather, Gahini agribusiness has not shown a big success since 2012.  However Jane is optimistic she is going take it to another level now that she is devoting all her time to the business.

By attending the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® program, Jane hopes to turn into a better professional business woman and learn more about agribusiness. Jane will be working with Monte Skarsgard of Skarsgard Farms in Albuquerque
