Meet Christine Uwimbabazi, The Entrepreneuring Immigrant Behind The Wheel of Prime Care Transportation
“We make such a difference in peoples’ lives. We are more than drivers. We make people feel comfortable and safe and cared for, and if we don’t transport these people, then the doctors won’t be able to do their jobs, and these people won’t get their blood cleaned or their shots or their surgeries. We’re part of the circle. We complete each other.”

How does it make you feel to be an inspiration for other aspiring business owners?
The feeling can range from being scared to being proud at the same time. Owning a business itself is scary, but being part of something bigger than yourself is rewarding. Women are not just business owners but we are the inspiration for our kids, our families, and our communities. We are more than what we think we are. By helping each other; we are creating a better world. That’s my wish.
