Terimbereii Group's story

Alexandre is a member of the TerimbereII group and lives in Bujumbura. He is 40 years old and married to Sophie, a tomato-seller. The couple have 9 children aged between 8 and 25, all of whom are getting an education.

Alexandre has been selling small livestock for 4 years. This is his 3rd loan from Turame. His Kiva-sponsored loan will increase his capital and enable him to buy 5 more goats. All of his livestock will be sold, so that he can earn more. In the coming years, he would like to start breeding livestock, build a house, and ensure that his children can keep studying.
