The policy of the Government of Rwanda to formalize the informal sector has affected local livelihoods. This paper acknowledges the accomplishments of the Government in improving the business climate. However, its efforts to attract large-scale, capital-intensive projects have discouraged small-scale investment initiatives by local entrepreneurs. Through a case study on the brick and tile business in two rural settings in Rwanda, we analyse how the transition from the informal to the formal sector can have negative impacts on employment creation and local livelihoods.
