Isidonie belongs to group Giringoga and lives in Kayanza. She is 28 years old and married to Oscar, a tailor. Together they have four children aged four to eleven; two of them attend primary school. She has two orphans in her care, who study in primary school.
She has been retailing corn for four years. She is on her eighth loan with Turame. With the Kiva loan granted her, she will increase her capital and purchase a lot of corn to resell and earn more.
In the coming years, she would like to purchase a carrier bike, which can contribute to earning enough food on days when she cannot trade corn.
