C 2187 Twitezimbere Group's story

Florence, a 39-year-old married mother of five children between the ages of 9 and 18 years, owns a business selling goats and chickens. The leader of this group, which is called "Twitezimbere" in the local language, she is shown on the left in the photo.

Florence, who has been in her business for about two years, operates from 5 a.m. until 5 p.m. everyday, and has one employee. She and her team have requested a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to increase their quantity of goats and chickens to sell. The extra profits accruing from the loan will be reinvested in their businesses and used to pay their children's school fees.

In this group: Florence, Sylve, Marie Claire, Jean, Jean Paul
