Yagamahoro Group's story

Anastasie is a 33-year-old merchant who lives in the town of Kibimba in Gitega Province, in the middle of the country. She has been doing commerce in a variety of store goods (beans, rice, sugar, soaps, cookies, palm oil...) for four year. She used to deal in bananas before beginning her current business.

Anastasie attended school and reached the 5th grade. She is married to Jérôme, a store keeper. Together they have five children, of whom three are students.

The Kiva loan of 300,000 Burundi francs that Anastasie obtained has enabled her to increase her capital to buy large amounts of various goods (beans, rice, sugar, soaps, cookies, palm oil...) to resell, so as to make a large profit.

She is a member of the community group "Yagamahoro".
