A loan of $2,525 helped a member to increase her capital and buy extra crates of beer for resale.


Kundana Group's story

Jeanine is a member of the Kundana group and lives in Gitega. She is 43 years old and married to Boas, who is a driver. They have seven children aged between one and 21. Six of the children are in school: two at secondary school, three at primary, and one at kindergarten. Her family also cares for three other children.

Jeanine has been selling industrially-produced beer since the age of 15. This is her fourth loan with Turame. With her Kiva loan, she will increase her capital and purchase additional crates of beer for resale, which will increase her income. She hopes for a better future, as she will be able to feed and clothe her children, and pay their school fees.

In this group: Françoise, Jeanine, Febronie, Melchiade, Penina
