Abarondezi Group's story

Rita is a member of the Abarondezi group and lives in Bujumbura. She is 27 years old and unmarried. She has been selling sewing notions (thread, buttons, lining...) for seven years.

This is Rita's second loan with Turame. With the Kiva credit she obtains, she will increase her capital and buy additional rolls of poplin to re-sell. In the next few years, she would like to buy her own property and build a house.
