Gwiza Group's story

Divine is part of the Gwiza group and lives in Bujumbura. She is a 30-year-old widow and has 2 children, aged 4 and 7. The eldest child goes to school. She also takes care of two more people.

Divine has been selling produce like sweet potatoes, potatoes and bananas for 14 years. This is her 6th loan from Turame. The Kiva-sponsored loan will increase her capital and allow her to buy a large amount of sweet potatoes, potatoes and bananas for resale, so that she can earn more. In the coming years, she would like to own a shop, build a house from durable materials and see her children get an education.
