Karurama Group's story

Rémy is a member of the Karurama group and lives in Cibitoke. He is 39 years old and is married to Elisabeth, a farmer. Together they have four children, aged 1 to 14; two of which go to school. Rémy has been running a shop ([selling] rice, beans, palm oil...) for 4 years. He is on his fifth loan with Turame. And with this Kiva-financed loan he's going to increase his capital and buy goods (rice, beans, palm oil,...) to resell for profit. In the next few years, he would like to buy a plot of land and see his children go to school.
