Subject: Request for Quotations

TechnoServe Inc. (TNS) – Rwanda, seeks service providers to submit competitive bids for Supply of Laptops for the TNS office.

Introduction

TechnoServe is an independent, non-governmental organization providing professional support to build competitive farms, businesses and industries. We are a non-profit organization that develops business solutions to poverty by linking people to information, capital, and markets. Our work is rooted in the idea that given the opportunity, hardworking men and women in even the poorest of places can generate income, jobs, and wealth for their families and communities.

We recognize that maximizing the inclusive economic growth requires the full and unencumbered participation of women. This requires us to not only systematically integrate gender in our project participation, but also within all levels of our staffing. For more information, visit www.technoserve.org
