C6406 Turwanyubukene Group's story

Mediatrice is 37 years old. She is married and has five children between the ages of 5 and 15. Her business is well-organized and sells various sorts of fruit such as pineapples, bananas, passion fruit and so on. She employs one person to help her. She got into this business because it is profitable in her region and she has been successfully running it for four years. Mediatrice is the leader of a group called "Turwanyubukene" in the local language. The group includes seven members (three men and four women).

Mediatrice and her group have requested a loan from Kiva lenders, via Vision Finance Company, in order to purchase more products for their shops so that they can provide better service to their customers. The loan will impact the group members by helping them to purchase larger quantities of stock, which will allow them to earn more profits. With the extra income they earn, Mediatrice and her group hope to save some money and to reinvest in their businesses. Mediatrice hopes to open a supermarket in the future.

In this group: Azarias, Leonie, Jean Pierre, Charlote, Appolinairie, Erisa, Mediatrice
