Abimumbiyehamwe Group's story

Jeannette is part of the Abibumbiyehamwe group and lives in Gitega. She is 30 years old and married to Ferdinand, a farmer. Together they have 5 children, aged 6 months to 9 years. She has traded in a shop (beans, salt, rice, etc.) for six months, initially selling local beer.
Jeannette is on her twelfth loan with Turame. With this Kiva loan, she will increase her capital and buy many items for her shop (beans, salt, rice, etc.) to resell and earn more. The profits from her business will allow her to support her husband who runs a bike transport service.
