A loan of $2,275 helped a member to buy lots of clothes to resell.


Intumwa Group's story

Pascaline is a member of Intumwa Group and lives in Bujumbura. She's 27 years old and married to Justin, an agent with Brarudi (a brewery and soft drink company in Burundi).

They have three children together, aged two months to six years. Out of them, two go to school. Pascaline also takes care of her little sister who is studying.

She's been selling clothes for five years and she's seeking her fifth loan from Kiva's partner, Turame. With this Kiva loan, she will bolster her working capital and buy lots of clothes to resell, in order to increase her income.

In the forthcoming years, she would like to open a clothing store, and see her children begin and completed their studies.
