A loan of $2,700 helped a member to buy many goods for his shop (rice, beans, palm oil, sugar...) for resale.

Amani Group's story

Ernest is a member of the Amani group and lives in Bujumbura. He is 45 years old and married to Judith, a government employee. Together they have 7 children, ages 4 to 20. All their children attend school.

Ernest has been selling rice, beans, palm oil, sugar etc. in a shop for the past 25 years.

This is his fifth loan with Turame. With his Kiva loan, he will increase his capital and buy many goods that he will resell in his shop (rice, beans, palm oil, sugar etc.), in order to make more money.

In the coming years, he would like to buy his own plot of land and see his children graduate from school.
