Abadahemuka Group's story

Séraphine is a member of the ABADAHEMUKA group and lives in Gitega. She is 43 years old and is married to Joseph, a clothes merchant. They have two children together. The oldest is 8 years old and is in elementary school. Séraphine has been selling fritters for 8 years. This is her 15th loan with Turame. With her Kiva loan, she will increase her capital and buy extra kilos of flour. She will then prepare a large quantity of fritters which she will sell to make more money. With the earnings from her business, Séraphine takes care of her family's health costs and food expenses. She also pays her child's tuition fees. She has already bought 3 pigs and 4 goats to prepare her children's future.
