“We mean  taxes on District level, new entrepreneurs will not be charged for two years since the beggining of their business, It is the way of helping them so that, once they make profit they pay those taxes, because they are required to pay more, It will help them to develop and grow higher,”  Pacifique Uwineza, of Chamber for Young Entrepreneurs (CYE) in the Private Sector Federation (PSF) .
