A loan of $4,350 helped a member to buy a large quantity of bananas with which to make local beer.

Warakoze Group's story

Jeanne is a member of the Warakoze group and lives in Kayanza. She is 45 years old and is married to Jerome, a goat and rabbit merchant. The couple have 7 children together, aged between 13 and 27 years old. The youngest son is the only child who goes to school and still lives with his parents.

Jeanne has been selling Primus beer and local beer for 13 years. This is her 8th loan with Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored credit will increase her capital and she will buy a large quantity of bananas with which to make many litres of local beer for resale, so that she can earn more money. In the coming years, she would like to continue with her business and use the profits to contribute towards taking care of the family's needs.
