Turambane Group's story

Zacharie N. is a 40-year old merchant who lives in the city of Kibimba in the province of Gitega. He has had a business selling green beans for 8 years. He has a grade 6 education. He is married to Crescenece N. who is also a merchant and part of the same group. They have 4 children together and they are all in school. They are on their 10th loan cycle with the communal bank Turame (Kiva Field Partner). He requests a Kiva loan to supplement his capital funds with the goal of purchasing large quantities of green beans. He will increase his supply for sale and it will increase his earnings. He hopes that with the profits earned with the help of this loan he will be able to develop his business enough to provide for his family's needs. He is a member of the group named "Turambane".
