Tureme 2 Group's story

Thiery is a 32 year old retailer who lives in the Kamenge neighborhood in the town of Bujumbura. For the last 6 years he has been selling various items (oil, rice, beans, salt, cookies, candy, shoes, toothpaste...). He started this kind of work as soon as he left school, after the 10th year. Thiery is still single.
