A loan of $4,075 helped a member to buy large quantities of industrial beer.

Twizerimana Group's story

Virginie, age 46, is a merchant who lives in the Nyabututsi neighborhood, in Gitega (center of the country). She's been selling industrial beer for seven years. She's also a teacher.

She pursued her studies until she obtained the "Diplôme des Humanités pédagogiques". She's married to Louis, and together they have eight children, out of whom seven attend school.

She's seeking a loan of BIF 300'000 (ca US$ 235) from Kiva, which will enable her to bolster her working capital to buy large quantities of industrial beer to resell, and increase her profits and savings.

Virginie is a member of Twizerimana Group.
