Yagamahoro Group's story

Anastasie is a member of the Yagamahoro group and lives in Gitega. She is 34 years old and is married to Jérôme, a mobile salesman. Together they have 5 children, aged between 1 and 11 years old, 3 of whom study.
She has been a trader of staple items (rice, beans, salt, etc) for 2 years. This is her twelfth loan with Turame. With the KIVA funding she hopes to obtain, she will increase her working capital and buy a large quantity of staples (rice, beans, salt, etc) to resell at a profit.
The profits from her trading allow her to feed the family, pay the childrens' school fees, meet the medical bills, etc. In the coming years, she would like to buy a plot of land.
