A loan of $2,475 helped a member to increase her capital and to buy charcoal intended for resale.

Senga K B Group's story

Aisha is a member of the Senga KB group. She is 53 years old and lives in Bujumbura. She is a widow. She has three children between the ages of 12 and 24, who are in school.

She has been selling charcoal for eight years now.

This is her third loan cycle through Turame. With her Kiva loan, she will increase her capital. She is going to buy a lot of charcoal which she will then resell in order to earn more money.

The profits will enable her to meet the needs of her family: to pay for her children's education, to pay for medical care, to buy clothing, to improve their diet...and to pay back the loan.

In this group: Jean Emmanuel, Aisha, Triphonie, Bebi, Elias, Anitha, Francine, Assani*, Maura*, Lwesso*, Mbiya, Joselyne, Rukiya, Pili, Francine, Omar, Françoise, Joseph, Noella
