Amandine Juru, manager at Cocobean Bar and Nightclub shares her experience as a
part of the KOMEZA program. Cocobean, a famous spot for many locals in Kigali, used to operate
mainly as a nightclub with its day restaurant working to compliment its regular revenue from the
club. However, the pandemic saw the closure of all nightclubs in the country for over 18 months
prompting Cocobean to go back to the drawing board and reconsider its offerings. This business
story offers valuable lessons and a wealth of inspiration.
