Tugwizumwimbu Group's story

Aline is a part of the Turwizumwimbu group and lives in Gitega. She is 25 years old and married to a man named J. Marie, a merchant. Together, they have four children, of whom three go to school. Aline has been selling beef for six years. She is on her 11th loan with Turame. With this Kiva-financed loan, she is going to increase her capital and buy some more cows. These cows will be slaughtered and their meat will be sold, allowing her to earn more. In the coming years, she would like to buy a large piece of land in order to commence a large agro-pastoral project.
