A loan of $2,400 helped a member to increase her capital and buy a large quantity of milk for resale.


Dufashanye Ii Group's story

Bibiane, who lives in Bujumbura, is a member of the Dufashanye II group. She is 52 years old and a widow. She has four children, ages 18 to 25, who all attend school. She has been selling milk for the past two years. This is her first loan with Turame. With the loan that she is receiving from Kiva, she will be able to increase her capital and buy a large quantity of milk for resale, so that she can make more money. In the coming years, she would like to start importing shoes from Uganda again (which was her former occupation). She would also like to ensure that her children go to school, and once they complete school, she would like to teach them business.
