Abahizi Group's story

Alexis has been a grocer (bananas, cabbage, soap, …) for five years.

He is on his second loan at Turame. With the KIVA loan he is obtaining, he is going to increase his capital and purchase many items for his store (bananas, cabbage, soap,…) to resell, so as to earn more.

In the coming years, he would like to have a lot of working capital to expand on the items in his store.
