Girintege Group's story
Evelyne is a member of the Girintege group and lives in Cibitoke. She is 30 years old and married to Ernest, a brick maker. The couple have 4 children aged between 1 and 8 together, two of whom attend school. She is also taking care of a student, who is a member of her extended family. Evelyne has been selling banana wine and dried cassava for 10 years. This is her 2nd loan from Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored loan will increase her capital and allow her to buy a large quantity of bananas with which to make banana wine for resale, so that she can earn more money. In the years to come, she would like to have her own shop.
