A loan of $3,925 helped a member to increase her capital to buy a large amount of grocery items (cassava flour and ndagala) to resell in order to make a large profit.


Sasagara Group's story

Rosette is a 35-year-old merchant who lives in the town of Mumuri, in Gitega Province, in the middle of the country. For three years, she has been doing commerce in grocery items (cassava flour and a dried fish called ndagala). She is also a farmer.

Rosette attended school and reached the 6th grade. She is married to Sylvestre and is the mother of four children. Two of the children are in primary school.

The Kiva loan of 100,000 Burundi francs that Rosette obtained has enabled her to increase her capital to buy large amounts of grocery items (cassava flour and ndagala) to resell in order to make a large profit. Thus, she can meet her many needs.

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