[Scorpio Ramazani Khoury,] 26-year-old, a mineral trader by profession, is trying to lead the way—and in the process, boost Rwanda’s reputation as a global exporter (of textiles, of course, but also minerals). Her fashion house, Made in Kigali, expanded in a year to employ nearly 50 tailors, and is currently working with the minister of trade on a large-scale training center in Kigali that could handle 3,000 tailors.

Made in Kigali is listed alongside world renown brands such as Apple, Google, Alibaba, Instagram, Samsung, and more.
