Gabiro Group's story
Jeanine Habinomana, 30, is a businesswoman who lives in the township of Rugombo (in the province of Cibitoke) in the west of Burundi. She attended school up to grade 3. Her husband is a farmer. She sells clothing in the central market of Rugumbo. Earlier, she used to work as a farmer besides selling clothing, but for the past year, she has been devoting herself completely to her business. She is the mother of two children, a little girl of 4 and a boy of 18 months. She is doing everything she can to guarantee that her children will be able to go to school and finish their studies so that they can live comfortably. Jeanine is requesting the loan from Turame-Kiva to add to her inventory of clothing that she sells her customers. She hopes to be able to surmount life's various difficulties, and also to struggle against poverty, thanks to the income from her business. She encourages others to request a Turame-Kiva loan because she has seen how much it has helped her to deal with household problems. She is a member of the 'Gabiro' group and is on her second loan.
