Twubake Ii Group's story

Pascasie is a member of the Twubake group. She lives in Bujumbura.

She is married to Viator, a mason. Together, they have 2 children, ages 3 and 9, who both go to school.

She takes care of three people, two of whom attend school.

She has been in the business of selling “Primus” beer at her bar for seven years. She is on her third loan with Turame. With the KIVA loan that she will receive, she will increase her capital and buy five extra cases of “Primus” beer. All of the beer that she buys will be sold to increase her income.

In the years to come, she would like to be able to meet the needs of her family and to see them study at school.
