Ukurikwose Group's story

Jacqueline is part of the group Ukurikwose and lives in Gitega. She is 45 years old and married to Joseph, a farmer. Together they have six children, from 2 to 19 years old, of whom five are students. Jacqueline has been doing commerce in banana beer for five years. She is on her 3rd loan at Turame. With the KIVA loan she is obtaining, she is going to increase her capital and purchase a large amount of bananas to process into beer to sell, so as to earn more. In the coming years, she would like to buy a parcel of land and some arable land and to see her children educated.
