Evelyne Ndabaneze-Masumbuko, an entrepreneur creating a unique online English city guide for expats in Cote d’Ivoire

It can be difficult moving to a new country as an expatriate and not speaking the local language. But in Ivory coast, English speaking residents now have a great new resource to help out, thanks to entrepreneur Evelyne Ndabaneze-Masumbuko, founder of Abidjan4you.

What does your company do?

Abidjan4you is the unique city guide for expats in English in Ivory Coast.

What inspired you to start your company?

I have lived in many countries, especially in Europe and sometimes I did not speak the local language and I had to use expats websites in English to understand the city. As I knew from first hand experience how it was to be in a country when you don't speak the local language, I decided to create Abidjan4you first in English for all the people who don't speak French and who live in Ivory Coast.

Ivory Coast – Africa’s best macro story

Ouattara said the new constitution would help overcome divisions in the country that had led to civil war in the past. While it overwhelming passed in a referendum, voter turnout was low. Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara on Tuesday signed into law a new constitution that was overwhelmingly approved in a referendum last month, ushering the West African nation's Third Republic. "The wind of democracy is blowing again in Ivory Coast," Ouattara said after signing what he described as a social contract for generations to come."The promises of the Third Republic are the promises of peace, stability, equality and modernity." Voters approved the new constitution in an October 30 referendum with 93 percent support, but the results were undermined by lower voter turn out of 42 percent.
