Twigire Gatenzi Group's story

Salome is 40 years old and is married with seven children. She lives in the south of the country and she is happy with her family. She is in this business of selling vegetables such as: cabbages, eggplants and carottes for the past 21 years. She is organized. Salome loves the others in the community and loves to see them developing, that is why she hired one employee to help her. Salome is a leader of TWIGIRE GATENZI group and in the picture, she is the one raising her hand. This group knows each other and they are trying to pay on time.

Lack of enough capital prevents her to reach the target of her business growth; and that why Salome is requesting this loan. With this loan, Salome will be able to buy enough food for her children and to educate her children and then she can increase sales to earn more revenue.

Salome is truly thankful for the Kiva lenders for offering her this loan.
