African Dream - Olivier Nizeyimana

When Olivier Nizeyimana was a student, the journey to Rwanda's National University would sometimes take him ages, so he thought it would be a good idea to start a bus company that made punctuality one of its core values.

"People learn from problems. Sometimes in business, a problem can be an opportunity," he told the BBC's series African Dream.

In 1999, a year before graduation, he launched his Volcanoes Transport Company.

He started the company with two buses and now has more than 60. And it is expanding internationally.
