A loan of $3,575 helped a member to bolster her purchases of rice and beans for resale.

Girumwete Group's story

Annonciate is a 29-year-old merchant who lives in downtown Gitega. She is a member of the solidarity group GIRUMWETE. She started selling foodstuffs (rice and beans) five years ago, and she is also a farmer. She is married to Jean-Bosco, a caregiver. The couple have three children, one of whom is in the fourth grade of primary school. Annonciate herself attended school up to the fifth grade.

Her loan of 100,000 Burundian francs will help her to increase her working capital and to bolster her purchases of rice and beans for resale in order to earn substantial profits.
