Amani Group's story

Jerome is part of the Amani Group and he lives in Gitega. He is 50 years old and is married to Stéphanie, a farmer. Together, they have 10 children from 11 to 30 years old, 5 of whom are in school.

For five years, Jerome has done business in a shop (beans, rice, sugar, etc.).

This is his sixth loan via Turame. With the loan from Kiva, he will grow his capital by expanding the inventory of the shop (notebooks, Fanta, boxes of soap, sacs of rice and beans, etc.)

The profits drawn from the business will help to pay the school fees of his children.
