Twitezimbere Group's story

Consolate is a 43-year-old retail merchant who lives in the village of Songa, part of the Commune and Province of Gitega in the central region.

She has been retailing beer for the past 11 years, a job she started when she was an employee at the Meridian Bank. She studied up to the 9th grade.

She is married to Dieudonné who is a worker at the WFP (World Food Program), and with whom she has three children: two are in high school and one in primary. Her family also hosts a 25-year-old close relative.

Kiva's credit loan of 250,000 Burundian francs will bolster her working capital. This will enable her to buy many cases of beer for retail sales, in order to realize large profits and increase her savings.

She is a member of the Twitezimbere community group.
