Girintege Group's story

Evelyne is a member of the Girintege group and lives in Cibitoke. She is 30 years old and married to Ernest, a retailer. The couple have 4 children, aged between 1 and 8, two of whom go to school. She has been selling banana wine for 10 years.

This is Evelyne's 1st loan from Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored loan will increase her capital and allow her to buy a large quantity of bananas with which to make banana wine for resale, so that she can earn more money. In the years ahead, she would like to have a different business and own a small shop. She would also like to see her children get an education.
