Umushinge Group's story

Beatrice is a member of the Umushinge group and lives in Bujumbura.

She is 20 years old and married to a student named Janvier. Together they have a one-year-old child.

She has been selling shoes for the past six months.

This is her first loan with Turame. With her Kiva loan, she will increase her capital, which will allow her to buy and resell many pairs of shoes in order to make more money.

In the coming years, she would like to import goods from Uganda and see her child go to school.
