Irafasha Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase a lot of sheetmetal for making buckets, trunks,... in large amounts in order to sell and earn more.

The group Irafasha comprises eight women and one man. On the day the loan was granted, Sabine, Joséphine, and Espérance, three female members of the group, were sick. In the photo, they are represented by their respective husbands: Pascal, Bonaventure, and Jacques. Anicet, the group's representative, lives in Bujumbura. He is 40 years old and married to Jovanie. Together they have six children, from 5 to 15 years old, of whom four are in school. He has a member of his extended family in his care who is a student. He has been doing commerce in hardware (buckets, metal trunks, …) for twelve years. He is on his fourth loan with Turame. With this KIVA loan he is obtaining, he is going to increase his capital and purchase a lot of sheetmetal to make buckets, trunks, … in large quantities to resell, so as to earn more. In the coming years, he would like to do commerce in shop goods (beans, beauty lotions, shoes,…) Furthermore, he would like to see his children study and complete their schooling.
