Nyibuka A Group's story

Adele is part of the Nyibuka KA Group, and she lives in Gitega. She is 39 years old and is married to Salomon, a CD-cassette recorder working in a studio. Together they have 6 children from 1 to 13 years of age, of which 3 are in school. Adele has been a cassava saleswoman for 4 years. This will be her seventh loan from Turame. The cassava roots were attacked by blight. They are becoming more and more scarce. With the loan from Kiva, she plans to change her business: she will sell food commodities such as bananas and potatoes so that she can continue to do business.
