Abakozi Group's story

Anastasie is a member of the Abakozi group and lives in Gitega. She is a 56 year old widow. She has 5 children, 4 of whom are still in school. One is in primary school, and the three others in secondary school. The children are aged from 5 to 25. She has been a restaurant trader for the last two years. She is on her ninth loan with Turame. With the KIVA credit she is applying for, she will increase her stock of goods, buying non perishable products for her restaurant. She will build up a stock. These products will be cooked and sold progressively to her customers. The profits from her business allow her to feed her children.
