Beatrice is part of the Bizoza group. She is 47 and lives in Gitega. She is married to Tharcisse, who is a palm oil trader. They have 6 children between the ages of 8 and 22, 5 of whom attend school.

She has been selling banana beer for 20 years.

With the loan she is getting from Kiva, she will increase her capital by buying drums of banana beer in large quantity, which she will resell to earn more.

The profits will enable her to help her husband meet the needs of their family by buying clothes, body lotion, and various food products, as well as paying for their children's school fees.
In the coming years, she plans on offering a broader selection of products by branching out into the industrial beer business (Primus and Amstel).

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
