Starting a commercial cleaning company in Kigali

I was planning to start a commercial cleaning company in Kigali. I do not know if this is a good idea.  Not sure whether I will be able to get clients (contracts) since I never lived in Kigali before. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, what do you mean by cleaning service ? As the government already collect the garbage to all citizens and security fees. I'd suggest laundry service instead :) You can send me a private message if you like

What I meant is cleaning buildings like malls, offices etc... I do not kmow if there are companies who do that in Kigli. In the west companies do get contracts for those kind of services. Thanks

Oh I see, yes there are such companies but maybe you can offer best and join the competition !

Unfortunately I would not recommend it for a foreigner.  This is because you will need a good number of local hire (which will form the backbone of the cleaning company), but unfortunately there is a language barrier, local hires at that level easily give up looking for better opportunity (quite understandable) and many are literally from the village and need quite a bit of supervision and training.. before leaving and one has to start all over again. Would not recommend it as my honest opinion!

Noted. Your recommendation is much appreciated. Thanks
