This gives winners chance to join Les Amis Sportifs where they receive new equipment to ride as professionals.

“You will see them next year competing along with other professional local riders.  The efforts are bearing fruits that Les Amis Sportifs won Rwanda Cycling Cup in men juniors.   Rwamagana residents were excited to witness the race in which their very own children were participating, an opportunity for us to show them that we are together in different aspects of life and reminding them of our services as well,” he said.

“We have a branch here in Rwamagana town, withdrawal and deposits; we have quite a number of agents. We take this opportunity to remind them to embrace our services and thank them for being loyal as we mark 20 years of existence with a lot of innovations and new products on the market including the mortgage loan, Gisubizo Loan Express, among others. We welcome them to enjoy our top notch services as we move forward to taking further the country’s targets of going cashless,” added Iyamuremye.

The Head Coach of Les Amis Sportifs, Yusuf Sebugwiza appreciated Cogebanque ‘s involvement in organizing the race annually.
