Twungubumwe I Group's story

Jeanine is a member of the Twungubumwe group and lives in Gitega. She is 33 and is married to Emmanuel, a farmer. They have six children, aged from 1 month to 14 years old, three of whom are in school. She has sold banana beer for the last 15 years. This is her second loan from Turame. With the KIVA funds she is requesting, she will increase her working capital and purchase a large quantity of bananas to make the banana beer; she will sell this to increase her income. In the years ahead, she would like to get some agricultural land, and to oversee her children's education.
