Siyoni Group's story

Francine belongs to the Siyoni group and lives in Bujumbura. She is 24 years old, and is married to Gilbert, who is a driver. Together, they have a 3-year-old child.

For the last five years, Francine has been selling clothing, curtains and sheets. She is on her fifth loan from Turame.

With the Kiva loan, she is going to increase her capital and buy a large quantity of clothing, curtains and sheets to re-sell, to make more profit.

In the future, she would like to build her own house and see her child go to school.
