Dukore I Group's story

Jean is a member of the "Dukore I" group and lives in Gitega. He is 34 years old and is married to Nadine, a farmer. The couple have 3 children together, one of whom is in the 3rd year of primary school.

Jean has run a store selling food products (rice, beans, Fanta, etc.) for 15 years. This is his 17th loan with Turame. The Kiva-sponsored loan he obtains will increase his capital and he will buy other commercial products to resell in his store, so that he can earn more money. In the years ahead, he hopes to make large profits which will enable him to build a house in town.
