A loan helped to buy goods to resell.

Shima Group's story

Josephine is a member of the Shima group and lives in Ruyigi. She is 30 years old and is married to Deo, a driver. Together they have four children, of whom three go to school. Josephine has been selling goods (rice, beans, salt...) out of a shop for eight years. This is her fifth loan with Turame. With this Kiva loan, she is going to increase her capital to buy a large number of goods to resell in her shop, in order to earn more. The income from this business allows her to feed her family and pay her children's school fees.
