Effective Uses of Thermal Paper Rolls
Thermal paper is a particular type of paper, which is coated with certain chemical substances which changes color when exposed to heat. The surface of thermal paper has got saturated with mixture of dye and a medium, i.e., fluoran leuco dye as well as octadecyl phosphonic acid etc. When the medium is heated above the melting point of the substance contained, the dye will have a chemical reaction with the acid and paper changes it color and this change is immediately getting preserved in a solid state as the medium gets back to solid state instantly. Variety of thermal paper rolls are being used in different POS machines, ATM machines etc.

Overview of Rwanda
Rwanda,officially the Republic of Rwanda is a sovereign state in central and east Africa. Located a few degrees south of the Equator, Rwanda is bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Situated in the African Great Lakes region, Rwanda is highly elevated; its geography is dominated by mountains in the west and savanna to the east, with numerous lakes throughout the country. The climate of the country is temperate to subtropical, with two rainy seasons and two dry seasons each year.
Rwanda’s economy suffered heavily during the 1994 Genocide, with widespread loss of life, failure to maintain the infrastructure, looting, and neglect of important cash crops. This caused a large drop in GDP and destroyed the country’s ability to attract private and external investment.The economy has since strengthened, with per-capita GDP (PPP) estimated at $1,592 in 2013, compared with $416 in 1994.Major export markets include China, Germany, and the United States.The economy is managed by the central National Bank of Rwanda and the currency is the Rwandan franc; in June 2010, the exchange rate was 588 francs to the United States dollar.Rwanda joined the East African Community in 2007 and there are plans for a common East African shilling, which could be in place by 2015
