Twibesheho Group's story

Rose is a member of the Twibesheho group and she lives in Gitega. She is 37 years old and married to Joseph, who is involved in farming and business. Rose and Joseph have seven children, five of whom are in school.

Rose has been selling bananas and banana wine for the past ten years.

This is her 12th loan with Turame. With her loan from Kiva, she will boost her capital and buy large quantities of bananas, some of which will be resold as such, while others will be processed into banana wine for resale. This loan will ultimately help Rose to make more money.
