In a recent major event celebrating Francophone SMEs and Africa on the international stage, Prima Mabonzo, founder of Kisina Déco, had the honor of participating in the 4th International Conference on Francophone Economic Francophonie, also known as CIFÉ 2024. This event, which took place from March 19th to 22nd at the Institute of International Relations of Cameroon at the University of Yaoundé II, brought together hundreds of key players in the business and economic sectors within the Francophone space.

Prima Mabonzo was a dynamic and inspiring voice at this assembly, highlighting the importance of SMEs in the Francophone economic fabric and sharing her unique experience as a passionate entrepreneur promoting African craftsmanship through Kisina Déco. By participating in stimulating plenaries and informative sessions, Prima was able to exchange ideas with other Francophone entrepreneurs and explore new perspectives for the development of her business.
