With a Female-led Workforce at his Firm, this Entrepreneur is Working to Address Rwanda’s Skills Gap in the Financial Services Industry 

In the ever-evolving landscape of global business, tales of success often shine brightest when they originate from humble beginnings. Such is the narrative of Akash Ladha, an entrepreneur who charted a journey from his hometown in India to the heart of Rwanda, transforming not only his own life but also contributing to the growing financial landscape of the country. In 2016, and as a newly-qualified chartered accounting professional, Ladha arrived in the land of a thousand hills to work for a Rwandan accounting firm. In seven years, he established a company of 30 employees, with an office overlooking the city of Kigali, just one floor above KPMG’s main branch in Rwanda.
