Roranirwa Group's story

Acquiline, age 51, is a member of Roranirwa Group. She lives in Gitega and is married. She has nine children, out of whom three are married and six attend elementary school.

She's been selling beverages (Amstel, Primus) for 34 years. She's seeking her fifth loan from Kiva's partner, Turame.

Her part of the loan will be used to increase her working capital and purchase a large quantity of beer.

Her profits help her to buy food and to pay the school expenses of the children.
