C1914 Shirubute Group's story

Francine, 30 years old and the married mother of a four-year-old, also takes care of one relative. Francine is the leader of the group called "SHIRUBUTE," which in English means " DON'T BE LAZY," a phrase that is well-known in her well-organized tailoring business, which has been in operation for two years. Working from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. everyday, she currently employs one person to help her. In the photo, Francine is the second person from the right in the second row, wearing a white T-shirt and glasses.

Francine and her team have requested a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company in order to increase their tailoring businesses by purchasing new materials. They will reinvest additional profits into their enterprises and save money to pay their children`s school fees.

In this group: Vestine, Peragie, Collette, Francine, Jeanine, Neema, Chantal, Marie Claire, Jeanine
