Gatore Landry Nandhi is from Gitega province. Since he was still a child, he was interested in carpentry. He created the Daoud company in 2017 which produces materials for the home such as beds, tables, different types of chairs, windows, doors, boards, wardrobes and all other furniture made with boards.

Gatore took up the carpentry profession while studying in primary school. When he was in high school, he combined studies and carpentry. He then launched his own company in 2017, which he named Daoud Company.

When I started, no organization supported me. I bought equipment with the money I earned by working for other people. Once they paid me and I saw that I could buy one of the materials, I had to buy it. I continued working like that, once I got paid again, I had to buy another one and when I finished collecting equipment, I started my own business,” recounts Gatore.

Gatore has faced the problem of lack of sufficient equipment until today. However, he has not thrown in the towel.

The Daoud company is now growing faster has thus hired 20 workers. They envision to hire up to 50 workers in five years. They also want to sell materials that are difficult to find in Burundi, which are used is carpentry.
