Vyizigiro Iii Group's story

Maneno, age 26, is a member of Vyizigiro III Group. She lives in Gitega and is married to Donatien, a teacher. Together, they have three children, out of which two go to school.

She's been selling rice for ten years and she's seeking her eighth loan from Kiva's partner, Turame. With this Kiva loan, she will bolster her working capital and buy a large quantity of rice to resell, in order to increase her income.

In the forthcoming years, she would like to buy a lot of land and build a house. In addition, she would like to see her children complete their studies.

In this group: Monique, Maneno, Lite, Amida
