Meet Jean Paul!

Jean Paul has been involved in the Rwandan coffee industry for 15 years and has been invaluable as our Financial Controller and Director of Business Development for the last three. His passion and drive to see Land of a Thousand Hills continue to effect positive change is contagious, and we’re so thankful to have him on the team!

Jean Paul has a Master’s Degree in Finance from The School of Banking and Finance in Rwanda and has also completed additional training in Financial Management at Michigan State.

He has two daughters and a son with his wife of 10 years, Mukabatsinda Amina. At 8, 6, and 3-years-old, one of his primary motivations is to see them continue through the highest level of education possible.

Jean Paul became interested in coffee as a tool for socioeconomic health in 2001 and has been involved in one way or another with Land of a Thousand Hills since its genesis. He is committed to seeing the people in Ruli find stability and freedom, and feels that “mostly, I am working for my country.”

Jean Paul gave us a peek into his routine:

  1. “Every morning before doing anything I pray God
  2. Greet my wife because I mostly wake up before her
  3. I take a shower and after that, I go to check on my kids
  4. Then I assist on the preparation of my children for school
  5. Take a breakfast after that while preparing the documents and checking my daily goals for work
  6. I bring my kids to school and come to work
  7. My work starts at 8 am when there I firstly check my emails and respond to them and I move forward with my daily goals to be done.”

He is hardworking, focused, and a major asset to our team! We thankful for you, Jean Paul!
