A loan of $5,325 helped a member to buy many cans of palm oil for resale.

Muturirwa Group's story

Pascal is a member of the Muturirwa group and lives in Rumonge, a commune under the supervision of Bujumbura. He is 46 years old and married to Genèse. The couple have 6 children together, aged between 3 and 20, 4 of whom go to school.

Pascal has been selling palm oil for 19 years. This is his first loan from Turame. His Kiva-sponsored loan will increase his capital and he will buy many cans of palm oil for resale, so that he can earn more. In the years ahead, he would like to open a shop and breed goats, and watch his children progress in their studies.
