Business Group's story
The "Business" group has 29 members. Christine et Aline were not able to come the day the loan was granted; they are represented on the photo by their husbands, Patrick and Emile respectively. Désiré is the Business group representative and lives in Bujumbura. He is single and 28 years old. He is responsible for a young, 20-year-old man who is studying. Désiré has been selling clothes for 10 years. This is his 3rd loan from Turame. His Kiva-sponsored loan will increase his capital and allow him to buy a lot of clothing for resale, so that he can earn more money. In the years to come, he would like to rebuild his assets, as he lost his possessions in a fire at the central market of Bujumbura.
