A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy a large quantity of items (e.g. beans, rice, salt) for resale in her shop.

Turwize Group's story

Paulette is a member of the Turwize group and lives in Gitega. She is 51 years old and married to Louis, a salesman of local beer. The couple have 5 children together, aged between 12 and 20.

Paulette has run a shop selling items like beans, rice and salt, for 10 years. This is her 9th loan with Turame. The Kiva-sponsored credit that she will receive will increase her capital and allow her to buy a large quantity of stock (beans, rice, salt, etc.) for resale in her shop, so that she can earn more. The profits from her business allow her to feed her children, buy clothes and provide for the family's health care needs.
