A loan of $3,675 helped a member to buy hand towels.


Komeza Group's story

Diane is part of the Komeza group. She lives in Bujumbura. She is 28 years old and is married to Jean Baptiste. The couple have 2 children, aged 9 and 12. Both children go to primary school. Diane also supports her mother.

Diane has been selling hand towels for 8 years. She is on her 6th loan with Turame. The Kiva-sponsored loan that she will get will increase her capital and she will buy a large quantity of hand towels for resale, so that she can earn more. In the years ahead, Diane would like to become an importer and would like her children to go and study abroad.
